Dr. Schuurman worked for several years in industry before spending time in academia. His interest in computers began in his early teens with his first computer, a Timex-Sinclair ZX-81. He is also interested in the bigger picture (metaphorically, not in the number-of-pixels sense) and the various issues related to faith and technology. He has taught computer science at both Redeemer University College and Dordt College prior to teaching computer science at Calvin College. He has participated in various service projects with computing in developing countries. He is author of the book Shaping a Digital World and is available to speak to groups as time allows.
