Science Teacher


I've always liked science and teaching. I have a doctorate degree in microbiology and researched the molecular biology of cancer and diabetes for 20 years, but my first job was teaching gymnastics. I've been a high school science teacher since 2014.

Geometry and Precalculus

,Personal Message

This is my fourteenth year at Nathan Hale.  This year I am teaching Geometry and Precalculus.  I attended Stanford University and earned a BS and MS in Mechanical Engineering.  While working for my for first few years after graduate school as an engineer, I found that I was spending much of my free time volunteering with youth.  I figured that since I really enjoyed working with youth, I might as well get a job doing it full time.  I love teaching math at Nathan Hale.  I am happy to help students any day at lunch or after school.  In my life away from Nathan Hale I enjoy spending time with my wife and two sons, biking, swimming, hiking and reading.

,Personal Message

I have been at Hale since 2012 and love being part of this school community I have taught every form of Algebra at Hale. Over the last decade, I have worked with students from many high schools in Seattle through the Upward Bound Program and love encouraging students of color to reach their goals.

Over my time at Hale, I have been the advisor of the Anti-bullying Club, Meet-and-Eat Club, Robotics, and the Class of 2020. I am part of our school's Racial Equity Team as well as other roles. Reach out any time if you need help or questions. The best way to reach me is email.

I enjoy hiking, going on bike rides, and hanging out with my son Teddy and wife. One of my favorite things is to travel and experience new places/cultures.
