I love science! I mean really, how can you not love the method by which we explore and learn about the amazing world around us? I graduated from Colorado State University with BS degrees in Biochemistry and Microbiology and then went on to earn a PhD in Microbiology (emphasis in genetics, virology, and infectious disease), also at Colorado State University. After a few years of laboratory research in the School of Medicine at the University of Colorado, I discovered I really enjoyed teaching as an adjunct professor at Metropolitan State University of Denver. The opportunity to teach at PRA is a dream job. My goal as a high school science teacher is to pass on not only the facts about the world in which we live but also my enthusiasm and passion for learning. I strive to show students how fascinating the world, the universe, and science can be. In my free time I enjoy Do-It-Yourself projects around the house, playing volleyball, spending time with my wife and two children, and the many great outdoor activities that come with living in Colorado.
