Teaching Philosophy:

I believe that students learn best when they feel the material is relevant to their lives and aspirations.  An instructor must ensure that the material and techniques/skills he teaches are current, complete, and accurate.  I also believe that every student, regardless of discipline, should be given the opportunity to work one-on-one or in a small group on research or scholarly activity.

Teaching/Professional Interests:

Biology and Zoology (for science majors and non-majors), Anatomy, Physiology, and Pathology (for massage therapy students), Fundamentals of Ecology and Forest Ecology (for environmental science students), The Nature of Science and Sustainability (for Bachelor of Applied Science students).

Research Interests:

Herpetology, Population Ecology (freshwater turtles), Tropical Ecology, Applied Biotechnology (soil microbial diversity, MRSA).
