I am a graduate of Logan University with a Doctorate of Chiropractic degree, and a Bachelors of Science Human Biology degree. I practiced Chiropractic locally for 15 years then began my teaching career in 2010. I love teaching because I love learning. I am intensely curious about how and why things work and try to instill intellectual curiosity in my students every day by asking them lots of questions and encouraging them to do the same. 
 
I am a family man. I have been married to my wife Amy since 1991. We have three grown children. Our oldest son is in IT. My other son and daughter are both Registered Nurses working in local hospitals. We love to spend family vacations at the lake or occasionally in Mexico. I value my family life, and strive to maintain a positive work life balance.
 
I am very anxious about this year. I have always believed that a great teacher is one that can truly connect with students. I am not sure how virtual learning will afford me the same opportunity to bond as direct instruction. I do know that it is new to all of us, and we will work through it together successfully.
