About me


I grew up in Humboldt County from 2nd grade through High School.  I graduated from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and then worked in industry for 6 years before attending San Diego State to obtain my teaching credential in physical science and mathematics.  My wife and I have been married for 21 years and have two children, Josey (age 19) is now attending Gonzaga University, and Jack (age 15) is a Sophomore here at Mack High. This is my 29th year at MHS and I am currently the Science Club and Interact Club faculty advisor.
