This is my fourteenth year in Boulder Valley School District and my 11th year at Fairview High School. I've taught all different levels of physical science, biology, mathematics, outdoor education, earth science, and chemistry.

I grew up in Las Vegas where I graduated valedictorian of my high school class and went on to the University of Nevada, Reno where I earned a degree in Hydrology. After working for several years at the University of Nevada doing stable isotope analysis of aquatic ecosystems and the Desert Research Institute cataloging and managing spring resources in Death Valley National Park. I got married in August of 2005 and we subsequently moved to Boulder for advanced degrees at CU. I received a Master's in Science Education from CU and subsequently began teaching in BVSD in 2007. My daughter, Emmie, was born in 2011, shortly after my wife was diagnosed with metastatic melanoma. Sadly, my wife passed away in the fall of 2015 and Emmie and I have spent the last few years rebuilding our lives. I'm happy to report I got re-married in November 2017 and we have re-established a new family in the neighborhood. I feel very fortunate to be able to live in the same community in which I teach.

In my free time I enjoy playing the handpan, woodworking, board gaming, gardening, and spending time with my friends and family.
