About Me

Educational History:

I attended Lee College before transferring to the University of Houston, attending both the Clear Lake campus as well as the main campus in Houston. 

Degrees and Certifications:

I have always believed in the importance building a solid academic foundation for future endeavors. Towards that end, I earned several degrees that allowed me to develop specific skills and set goals for my future. Each degree counted as another step towards my various successes.

  • A.S. Data Processing
  • A.A.S. Electronics
  • B.A. Mathematics
  • B.S. Physical Science
  • B.S.C.E. Civil and Structural Engneering
  • M.S. Physical Science

Current Position:

I began my career at DHS last spring, teaching Geometry and Algebra II. This year, with changes in curriculum requirements, I am teaching 7 sections of Geometry for 10th and 11th grade. 

 

Previous Position:

Prior teaching experience at the secondary level inculded teaching Geometry, Advanced Geometry, Algebra I and Calculus for three years after first exiting college. I then became a Structural Engineer, designing buildings of all types up to 5 stories. As a heavy lift engineer, I designed the San Francisco Bay Bridge Roll in and Roll out support and movment structure for the Yerba Buena and ETI bridge spans with each side weighing about 3500 tons. I have also designed the lifting equipment used to move reactors, fractionators and very large turbines as well as generators for various chemical plants in the Gulf Coast Area, the Carolinas and Mexico. 

 

Family Information:

I have been happly marred to my wife, Robin, for 30 years. She has been an educator for 23 of those years and a school counselor in a neighboring district for 3 years. 

Personal Information:

When it comes to hobbies, I love photographing nature and scenic landscapes while traveling around the country. This is a passion I share with my wife who loves photographing animals and waterfalls. During the school year I am more into collecting antique fountain pens and, you guessed it, calculators. My wife often refers to me as a cypher dude (a nicer way of calling me a math geek).
