I grew up in Indiana, the son of a college Theatre Professor (Dad) and a Library Director (Mom). My brother is a Chemistry Professor at Carroll College (MT) and my sister is a School Social Worker in Iowa City (IA). I have a Biochemistry degree ('91) from Manchester College (IN), and Masters in Science Education ('96) from the University of Washington (Seattle), and a Ph.D. in Ecology and Environmental Science ('04) from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.

My wife is Dr. Sarah Zerwin, an LA teacher at Fairview, and our daughter, Jane, is in the 5th grade at UniHill.

I teach teacher education courses for the School of Education at the University of Colorado. I swim, cycle, write (here is a link to my book) and run. I also do a lot of free lance curriculum writing for the Howard Hughes Medical Institute's Biointeractive Site, a site with free science resources for teachers and students.
