About Me:

I am currently a Laboratory Supervisor for General Chemistry classes at Penn State - University Park. Some of my other responsibilities include assisting recitation classes for CHEM 110 (General Chemistry I), teaching CHEM 108 (Problem Solving in General Chemistry), and teaching SC 220 (Principles and Strategies for Effective STEM Learning I). I earned a B.S. in Chemistry Education from Brigham Young University- Provo. I am working on a Masters of Education in Higher Education (Student Affairs option) through the department of Education Policy Studies at Penn State World Campus. I have been a Penn Stater since 2015.

I am a proud father of three rambunctious boys and enjoy reading (mostly Star Wars novels), singing, and playing the piano and organ. I serve in my local community as Scoutmaster for BSA Troop 42, and in various volunteer positions in my church (organist, choir director, youth group leader, Young Men’s board presidency member).
