I moved to the High Desert when I was hired to teach at Apple Valley High School in November 1988, I taught there for 10.5 years and then taught at Granite Hills High School for 3 additional years. While teaching high school during the day, I began to teach at Victor Valley College in the evenings. I taught part-time at VVC from June 1989 until I was hired to teach there full-time in August, 2002. I have served as math department chair since Feb. 2008.
I have been married twice. From my first marriage to Carla (1992-2000), I have two children,
. In 2002, I married
who was widowed with 3 kids (Tim, Sarah and Hannah).

hobbies & interests
I love to watch musicals . If I had to pick a favorite, it would be "State Fair" by Rogers & Hammerstein or Merideth Wilson's Music Man. My favorite movie/musical is "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" with Steve Martin and Michael Caine.
I love digital film editing. You can check out some of my video lectures , family videos or comic aventures here on my web site. I am also interested in turning digital photos into painted portraits.
