I was born and raised in southern California, and enjoyed attending Talbert Middle School so much as a student that I decided to come back as a Teacher.  Science and PE are my passions, to the point where I really don't consider it "work," but rather a magical adventure comparable to what I can only imagine it would be like to ride a unicorn through a rainbow composed solely of marshmallows and ice cream.  In my spare time I enjoy sleeping, gardening, and exercising with my awesome wife and dogs.
