Government and Politics: U. S.
United States History
20th Century Popular Culture
I graduated from Washington State University with a degree in Communications and spent the first 20 years of my professional life as a television journalist. In 1998, I decided I needed a new challenge and went back to school to get my Masters. I was hired at Marist in the fall of 2000.
Like a lot of the people who work at Marist, I was also a Marist parent; David '02 and Caitlin ’06. I have seen the powerful impact Marist had on my kids. My journalism background and interest in government and politics brought me to Marist to teach Government and U.S. History. I have also developed two elective classes —Street Law and 20TH CENTURY Popular Culture — which give students a different perspective on important issues of the day.
During my time at Marist, I have coached basketball, golf, baseball, and speech and debate.Away from school I enjoy being outdoors; taking my dog Casey on a hike or working in my garden. I volunteer with Food for Lane County at the Dining Room. I've been married for 38 years to Kris and we have three grandkids.
