About Us

February 15, 2009

 Jet and I have been living in Oxford, Alabama since August, 2006, arriving from Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  We moved to Alabama because of my work as an Assistant Professor at Jacksonville State University in Jacksonville, Alabama.  On January 16, 2007, we had Benja (Ben Andrew Jirapat Ciganek) who has been a joy in our lives.  We travel every year to visit family both in Milwaukee and in Thailand and we blog about those trips (and everything in between) so that you can get a sense of our lives living in Alabama and the (mostly mild) adventures we embark on.  We are glad that you stopped by to check us out – feel free to leave a comment and tell us what you think.

Here is a little bit about us.  Jet (Jittima) and I met at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee(UWM) in the summer of 2001.  Jet and I were both teaching assistants for classes in the school of business(now known as the Sheldon B. Lubar school of business), and things took off from there.  Since then, we have traveled the world and visited locales throughout North America, Europe, and Southeast Asia.  We married in June of 2003 in Thailand amongst our family and friends.  Jet graduated from UWM in the summer of 2002 with a MBA (Masters in Business Administration) and I graduated from UWM in the summer of 2006 with a Ph.D. in MIS (Management Information Systems).  We are moving from Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Oxford, Alabama in August, where I will begin a tenure-track faculty position at Jacksonville State Universityin the fall in the Computer Information Systems (CIS) area.

    Andy – A new phd student in MIS has asked me questions about the program and some of the professors. I was wondering if you could give him your phone number so he could call you up and get the straight dope on the MIS department.

    His email is: e2nic@yahoo.com
