Biographical Sketch: 

I was born in Gainesville, Florida, and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico. After graduating from Eastern New Mexico, where I met my beautiful bride, we moved to Grand Junction, Colorado where I was employed as a drilling and corrosion engineer for Loffland Brothers Drilling Company. In 1985, we moved to Fort Collins, Colorado at which time I earned my teaching certification from CSU. I started my teaching career in 1987 at Rocky Mountain High School and moved to Poudre in the fall of 1988.While at Poudre I have taught Chemistry, AP Chemistry, Earth System Science, and IB HL Chemistry. I also have been involved in coaching Football , Baseball and Swimming. Kim, my wonderful wife, and I have two children Casey and Callie who are proud graduates of Poudre High School. I enjoy reading, running and playing golf.
