About the Teacher


I have lived in western Washington for most of my life and in Olympia for over
20 years. Go Huskies! My wife and I both graduated from the
UW. I also am a Greener, since I earned my Masters degree in Math Education
at The Evergreen State College. This is my 6th year at WMS and my 19th year teaching
overall. Our son is a graduate of UW's Civil Engineering department and our daughter is a 
freshman at the UW

I love teaching, math, writing, tinkering with things, golf, and my family.
Not necessarily in that order.

Other jobs I have had in my life: Insurance agent, egg packer, recycle paper
sorter, surplus warehouse supervisor, truck driver, waiter, and paperboy.

The best way to contact me is with an email message. I am happy to follow that
up with a phone call or an email back to you. Just let me know which way you
would like me to contact you.
