I've been teaching Spanish now for 19 years at the high schools level, 17 at
the junior college and just over 4 at BYUI online. I absolutely love what I do! My wife, Jill, and
I have 4 children, Joshua, 17, and Allison, 15, Natalie 12, and Kira 8. We were married on August 13th, 1993. Click

I spent 2 years in Argentina as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
I received my BA in
Spanish Translation in April, 1993 from Brigham Young University, and my MA in
California State University, Sacramento in May, 1998. I'm currently working on my doctorate in Online Learning.
I teach advanced Spanish
at Bear River High School
in Grass Valley, and evening Spanish courses at
Folsom Lake Community College in Folsom and online Spanish at BYU Idaho.
I also work at Comedy Sportz improvisational theatre. Its like the show "Who's line is it anyway?" only much, much better!!
I enjoy watching hockey
(Go Sharks!) and playing volleyball, cooking and reading (especially P. G.
Wodehouse, Rex Stout & other mysteries). I am originally from a small town to the west of
San Josť called Saratoga. I graduated from Prospect High School in 1986.
