Rev. Buzz King, Ph.D.

I am a Professor Emeritus of Computer Science at the University of Colorado at Boulder. I teach 3D modeling and animation at the University's Alliance for Technology, Learning, and Society. My research has been supported by DARPA, the U.S. Navy, the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Army, and IBM.

I am also a chaplain at Boulder Community Hospital and I serve as the pastor of First United Methodist Church of Pierce, Colorado.

I received my B.A. in Math from Occidental College and my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Southern California. I am also a graduate of the seminary at the Iliff School of Theology.

I grew up in Oxnard, California, and currently live in Boulder, Colorado.

My areas of expertise in technology include 3D modeling and animation with Maya, audio editing and repair, database and information system design, and multiplayer, networked game development with Unity.

As a pastor, I love to deliver historically-rooted, biblically-based, inclusive messages with lessons that are relevant to all people today..

I believe in living with empathy, forgiveness, and generosity, and with a genuine concern for the welfare of all people, regardless of their ethnic roots, personal lifestyle, or their spiritual practices.
