Education: Bachelor's degree, Arizona State University 1994. Master's degree (M.Ed) Arizona State University 2009.
Experience: I've been teaching biology at Westwood since 2007. Over 9 years of experience working in the field of wildlife biology as a field-research contractor and several years as an employee of the Arizona State University School of Life Sciences. During the summer, when I am not teaching, I conduct and publish field-research on various aspects of the ecology and natural history of Arizona's reptiles and amphibians [publications list] in addition to building and maintaining the website ReptilesofAZ.org.
I like to spend time hiking, camping, and fly fishing on weekends and during summer break.
