I attended Utah State University where I received a B.S. in Mathematics in 1960.  Going on to Kansas State University I received an M.S. in Mathematical Statistics in 1963.

I began my work experience at Missouri School of Mines (later to become the University of Missouri at Rolla).  I helped set up the first Computer Science Department where I was Assistant Professor of Computer Science from 1963 to 1966.

From 1966 to 1980 I have held positions as Operations Research Analyst, at the National Center for Educational Statistics, Washington, D.C.,  Director of Computer Assisted Registration at the University of Tennessee, Director of Information Systems at the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, and the first Director of Computing Services at Oklahoma City University.

From 1980 to 1993 I operated my own computer business, W.K. Winters & Associates. 

From 1993 to 2003, after I retired from my business, I was at Rose State College teaching Computer classes in the Senior Adult Program and the Coordinator of Computing Services in Continuing Education.

I retired from Rose State College in June 2003. Now I am a free lance web designer, writer, volunteer, entrepreneur, consultant and free time admirer.
