Finally after almost
3 1/2 years I ended my stint with the University
of Oregon Business College. However, I continue to teach one large
class at the UO Computer Information
I still teach at the Lane Community College
in the Computer Science Technology
department. I have been teaching there non-stop since 1999.
For 21 years I worked
as a software engineer for Hewlett-Packard
in Corvallis, OR. In 2002
I took an early retirement, so I could concentrate on completion of my
Master of Arts in Education Degree (specializing in Adult Education and
Distance Learning). I finished this program in 2003. So I found myself
highly educated and seriously underemployed.. But lack of a full time
job could be a blessing that allowed me to find new ways to express myself.
I decided to make a movie and I spent from June to November 2004 working
on it (read about it by following the link above). It was one super experience!
Since 1999 I have
been teaching at the Lane Community College
in Eugene, OR. in the Computer
Information Technology department. (Here
is the link to my Web Site there).
At the young age of 21, I graduated from (then) very well known art school
of Antoni Kenar in Zakopane, Poland, My degree was in sculpture. After
arriving in US (and officially changing the spelling of my name from Tadeusz
to Thaddeus) I started to work as a stonecutter and eventually opened
my own monument business. After 8 years I decided to change my profession,
went back to school, and received the Computer Science Degree. With this
new piece of paper Hewlett Packard hired me in 1981 and I spent 21 years
there. In 1999 I started to teach in Lane Community College in their Computer
After I left HP I received my Master in Education in 2003. In 2008 I started
to teach in the Business School of the University of Oregon.
I am serious about pursuing art, writing and photography, and currently
working on my next movie/play.
I lived in many places in Europe, before I arrived to USA, where I lived
in Ohio, then California, and finally, since the summer of 1981, I settled
living in Corvallis, Eugene,
Philomath, and in 1996 I
moved back in Eugene, one of the last bastions of a 60's
hippidom. I love it here. I have one hour to the spectacular Oregon
coast and one hour to Cascade
mountains snow. I am down to two cats who did not adopt too well to
5th story condo living.
