Favorite Place on Campus

Walking around the circle around the parade field. I take my dog on this walk fairly often.  My dog loves it because there are lots of squirrels to chase and I enjoy it because I always bump into people and start conversations. The community here is great.

Favorite Book

Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand

Why I love to teach

I get to share the subject I love with young people every day. Teaching at Shattuck-St. Mary’s is especially fun because of the diversity we have. Our students have perspectives from all over the world so the same event is seen differently by many of our students. It is great to hear the different perspectives from around the world in each of my classes.


Spending time with my wife and kids.
