I have been an educator since 1995. I currently teach earth science, science education, and field experience courses at UNI. I also teach driver's education when I have the opportunity.

Random and mostly useless facts about me:
  • I abhor television news. Local, broadcast, cable - it doesn't matter. I hate all of it.
  • I can still remember the first time I looked at Saturn through a telescope when I was about 8 years old.
  • I worked in a small grocery store through high school. It had two aisles and one checkout line.
  • Pikolinos are my favorite shoe brand. They last forever and I still wear every pair I've ever purchased.
  • I know Morse code and am convinced this skill will someday save my life.
  • I make quilts.
  • It drives me bonkers when people put periods and commas outside of quotation marks.
  • I dislike white bread.
  • I'm an amateur photographer and have shot weddings and senior portraits for friends and family members.
  • I enjoy using Linux and Mac OS. I use Windows only when I must.
  • The earliest evidence I can find of my online presence is this post to the sci.astro news group on November 13, 1993.
