I teach physical geography and world regional geography at CSULB. I also teach environmental science at Long Beach City College. Recently I have completed the coursework for a Ph.D. in Geography at Texas State University-San Marcos. It is a non-traditional program where students attend classes during the summer. I am specifically interested in the use of educational technology in the field of geographic education.  Prior to teaching I worked for fifteen years as an environmental professional at EARTH TECH which is located here in Long Beach. I primarily worked on the clean-up efforts at Edwards Air Force Base.
