I graduated from Mercer Area High School in 1996.   I attended Penn State University at University Park for two years before transferring to Westminster College to receive my Bachelor of Science degree in Biology in 2001.  I received my Master of Science degree in Wildlife Biology from Clarion University in 2007.   Since 2007 I continue to enhance my education by attending numerous workshops and classes across the nation.


After earning my MS in Biology in 2007 I was awarded an RET (Research Experience for Teachers) from NSF (National Science Foundation).  I went to work in the lab of Dr. Rick Relyea in the summer 0f 2008 acting as a researcher for the University of Pittsburgh.  My research focussed on two main avenues of study.    My first course of study was in the area of sexual selection of amphipods.  This work resulted in two publications in peer reviewed journals.   I was also asked to present my work at the ESA (Ecological Society of America) national convention in Pittsburgh.  I was then asked to present my work in San Francisco at the NSTA (National Science Teachers' Association) annual convention.  My other area of study was in the effects of herbicides and Pesticides on Amphibian Populations.   

Recently, I have acted as an instructor at AWLS (American Wilderness Leadership School).  AWLS brings over 200 educators and 40 youth to Granite Creek Wyoming every year.   These educators are instructed in many areas, predominantly ecology, and wildlife conservation.   They are then given the tools to return to their home schools and actively involve their students in their education.

Most importantly, I have taught Biology and AP Biology here at Greenville for the past 13 years.   I have also acted as the assistant athletic director for the past 8 years.   


I believe I may be the luckiest man alive!   In addition to loving my job and the students of Greenville High School,  I am also surrounded at home by 3 of the most beautiful women that have ever lived.   My wife Roxanne, and daughters Marley (10) and Lily (8) make my life exciting every day.   I also have the best dog ever Mugalo Jones (boarder collie) and a little ankle biter Maybe (yorkie mix) to keep me on my toes.   

Outside of school, I hate being inside.  I am an avid outdoorsman and love to spend my time hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, paddling and just generally exploring all things nature has to offer.  I love to introduce others to the greatness of the outdoors.
