I am currently in my fourth year teaching General and Inorganic chemistry at Lewis-Clark State College. My undergraduate experience at SCU was the main motivation for seeking a teaching position at a small teaching institution.
My wife, Nancy, teaches Physical Chemistry at Lewis-Clark State College. We have a two year old daughter, Leah, and are expecting our second child in June 2004. We very much enjoy life in small town Idaho.
