"I teach Marine Biology and Biology, both are full year classes. I grew up in the state of Iowa and came to Utah on a wrestling scholarship. I graduated from Utah State University and received my Master's degree also from Utah State University.
"I have been lucky to work as a research field scientist in various capacities. I have been to Antarctica, the Tropical Pacific, the Amazon, the Arctic circle, Mexico, Uruguay, and Costa Rica with various science studies.
"I believe in students; they are our world's future. I love sharing my research experiences and ultimately sparking a young person's interest in becoming a Marine Biologist.
"I believe I do have the BEST job in the world. Teaching curious kids, lecturing worldwide on cruise ships, going on world expeditions, and living in the great state of Utah. Life is good!"
