Teaching chemistry is my passion and I am excited to be starting my new career at Columbia College. I was born and raised here in Sonora and graduated from Sonora High in 2000. After working at Save Mart Supermarkets for 12 years, I decided to go back to school. Columbia College was my first stop, earning AS degrees in auto mechanics and physical science. I then commuted from Sonora to UC Merced from 2012-2018, earning a B.S. and M.S. in Chemistry and Chemical Biology.

My passion for teaching developed over the past 3 years working as a Teaching Assistant in upper division chemistry labs at UC Merced. I look forward to using this passion to develop future scientist here in my hometown.     

When not teaching I enjoy fishing, going to the lake, BBQing, and hanging out with my wife Jennifer.
