TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I'm a 29-year-veteran of a middle school science classroom. An Eagle Scout and veteran science teacher, I was born in Tucson in 1958 but consider Sierra Vista, Arizona, my hometown. I have a B.S. from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff and an M.A. from United States International University in San Diego. From playing the lead in dinner theater comedy and leading a month-long wilderness backpacking expedition for the National Outdoor Leadership School, to studying wild killer whales in the Puget Sound and scaling the heights of California's Mt. Whitney, I enjoy a wide variety of pastimes. A SAMLA Middle Level Educator of the Year and NAU Distinguished Education Alumni Award winner, I still make Sierra Vista my home base where I taught in a public middle school. My first novel, "Adventures In Spacetime," was published by Dan River Press in 1996. My second novel, "Duck Egg Blue," was published by Prometheus Books in 1999. Since that book's release, I have been busy with speaking engagements from California to Texas, across the Southwest, educating groups about First Amendment issues including censorship, religious discrimination, and the creationism versus evolution controversy. My latest adventure was cage-diving with great white sharks for the launch episode of Dreamchasers, a new reality TV series on A&E. I'm also a photographer and sell stock photography on several online sites.
