Business & Technology

Rick Berg UNMCE InstructorRick Berg graduated college in 1972, then spent the next 6 years traveling around the world. He was a diver and journalist in Costa Rica, climbed in the Himalayas and Andes, and hitch hiked across the Sahara. He was the sixth person to do a solo canoe descent of the Amazon. He then returned to the U. S. to get a Ph.D. in economics from UC‐Berkeley, but mostly to climb rocks in Yosemite. After that he spent 5 years at UC‐Santa Cruz, twice being nominated as its outstanding teacher. But once again adventure called, so he built a sailboat and spent 9 years sailing it around the Pacific and Indian Oceans, stopping to teach economics at universities in New Zealand and Macau, but mostly windsurfing, diving, and climbing coconut trees. In 1995 he sold the boat and moved to New Mexico, where he started a successful software development company, DataWizards, specializing in database design for both web and desktop, and the creation of custom Excel spreadsheets. Clients include the Albuquerque police and fire departments, Los Alamos National Laboratory, and many private corporations. Most recently, he has been writing software in the Kingdom of Bhutan. In addition, Rick satisfies his love of teaching by giving classes at the University of New Mexico Department of Continuing Education.

I am an Albuquerque‐based teaching artist, passionate about sharing my skills for teaching the art and history of Sand dance. I look forward to an opportunity to share this rich art form and its history with your student population. My style of teaching is very accessible, providing a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction even in the very first class. While Sand dancing shares similar roots, technique, and vocabulary with Tap dancing (my other passion), no special shoes are necessary nor required. Students are given the option to dance in their normal daily footwear or barefoot, a personal favorite. The kinetic experience with the sand is a unique and awesome component of my workshops, which gets students really excited to learn.

Dr. Norton was born in a drafty log cabin in the Carpathian Mountains.... Actually, close but not that close. She was born in the former Czechoslovakia, now the Czech Republic, and thanks to the former USSR, she came as a refugee with her family to Canada. She wanted to become a veterinarian, but somehow she became a historian, generally regarded as a much less useful profession. After graduating from the University of Western Ontario with BA and MA in history, she sought the warmer climate of New Mexico, U.S.A. Several years, and a Ph.D. later, she still resides, with her English husband, in the Land of Enchantment. Although she considers herself a recovering academic, she can't seem to give up her favorite subject, and she therefore shares her passion for it by consulting, occasionally teaching, and lately writing. Well, she does not really like the writing part; she likes the research and the finishing part.
