During my undergraduate years, I tended to hang out with the math crowd, despite my status as a physics major. I joined math club at my university (NAU) and enjoyed subjects within math. Even today I will choose to read mathematics material over topics in science, which is a switch from my younger years. However, physics was the start of my passion for mathematics, and I hope share this sense of awe with you, or anyone I am teaching/assisting. I have been fortunate to have been given the opportunity to teach a calculus class, for two years, and every part of it has been rewarding. And for the past two consecutive summers the University of Arizona has given me the chance to connect with my science roots and conduct some cutting-edge optics research.

What is your teaching philosophy?
When teaching, I always keep the Einstein saying on my mind, "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler." Everything I teach is with the hope of reaching that golden standard.
