I have been teaching in Sebastopol Union schools since the 1998-1999 school year when I was brought aboard to teach a 4th/5th combination class at Pine Crest School. Since then I have taught 1st grade at Park Side for 3 years before I ended up at Brook Haven teaching 6th grade math and science, among other subjects. I did my undergraduate work at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and got my Masters' Degree in curriculum, teaching, and learning mathematics at Sonoma State University, in 2008. I live in Rohnert Park with my wife and son, where I am involved in recreational soccer, little league baseball, and Taekwondo. I sadly don't have the time to act these days in community or college theater like I used to, but do get to still perform from time to time as the bass player and backing vocalist for the Rotten Tomatoes, a local cover band playing rock and blues.
