I was born and raised near Media, PA in Delaware County, where I attended Nether Providence High School, graduating in 1975. After attending Clarion State College I graduated with a B.S. in Biology in 1979. After working a year or so at Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia as the assistant to the hospital Epidemiologist, I decided to return to school to pursue a career in education. While teaching at Wilmington Christian School as a high school science teacher, I graduated summa cum laude from Widener University, earning a Masters of Education in 1983. In 1986, I began teaching middle school sciences at North Brandywine Middle School in Coatesville, PA. In 2004, I moved the the CASD main campus, as biology instructor. My current responsibilities include teaching forensic science to seniors.
At present, I am husband to my loving life-long companion and wife, Terri, father to four children and two step-children, and 'Pop Pop' to eight grandchildren.
While biology has been my life-long passion, I also enjoy church activities, gardening, fishing (when I have time), landscaping, camping, scuba diving and motorcycling. Terri and I also love to vacation in the Outer Banks, and in the Shenondoah Mountains of Virginia.
