This is my sixth year in Boulder Valley School District and my third 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 to my wonderful wife and we moved to Boulder for her to pursue advanced degrees at CU. I received a Master's in Science Education from CU and subsequently began teaching in BVSD.

In my free time I enjoy woodworking, gardening, and spending time with my family (my wife, Shannon, and two year-old daughter, Emmie).
