I instruct most all of the Career and Technical Education Applied Biology at AHS. These classes include: Watershed Ecology, Wildlife Ecology, Aquaculture, Forest Ecology, Greenhouse Management, and Nursery Landscape Design. These courses emphasize careers and are all hands-on supported by labs and investigations and usually project based learning. All classes meet graduation requirements for either a Lab science or Occupational credit.

I graduated from Washington State University in 1986 with a BS in Forest Management. I worked my way through college as a wildland firefighter. After graduation I spent 4 years in the forest products industry conducting forestry field work. I began my teaching career in the Aberdeen School District in 1990 and just finished my 30th year of teaching a job that I am passionate about and am truly thankful.

I reside in Central Park on a little 10 acre slice of heaven with my amazing family--my beautiful wife Lucy and our three children--Erikk, Eleanore and Madelynn along with our herd of beef cows, flock of sheep, a coup full of chickens, a few cats.
