I love chemistry.
I had a long academic career, having studied everything from gunsmithing to computer science, but chemistry was the first thing that I was great at. I have a knack for connecting abstract theory to the history and modern practice of the sciences.
I got my degree in biochemistry from the University of Arizona, where I taught general chemistry labs and TA'd for many semesters of biology. I focused much of my attention on organic chemistry, taking both the majors courses, as well as the 450, 538, and 640 synthetic design and mechanisms courses as electives.
Since graduation I have kept myself busy doing freelance research and technical writing, including writing some material for the college board's AP chemistry exam. I hope that through tutoring and working with Varsity I can share my skill and passion for the sciences and help others find similar enjoyment.
