I am an avid motorcycle rider and I really enjoy the hiking that western Colorado offers. While I was not born here, I have always enjoyed living in western Colorado. In fact, I received my bachelor's degree from Colorado Mesa University before moving on to Western Illinois University where I received my master's degree.

When teaching, I feel that mathematics is a field that really requires an understanding of the concepts. As a general rule, I will omit memorization when I can and focus more on helping students discover how solutions are obtained and helping them understand the methods that we can use to obtain them. I really enjoy finding interesting applications to any mathematics concept I encounter.
