Why I Teach What I Teach

I have been interested in astronomy since I was very young. I have also been fortunate to have several great role models, mentors and teachers in my life to guide me along my career path. As a result, I have had some incredible experiences, and I can't think of anything better than to be able to share them with students.


Something People Might Not Know About Me

Prior to joining CCAC, I worked for NASA and for the Office of Naval Research.
