    About Me

    I have been teaching for 6 years and a founding teacher at the Phoenix Coding Academy. I have previously taught IB and AP Physics and mentored the robotics program at North High School. I attended Phoenix College and Arizona State University and earned a bachelor’s degree in Physics/Secondary Education. I am product of Phoenix Union and a graduate of Carl Hayden High School. I have a passion for teaching and learning the physical sciences and their applications, I like to think I help facilitate students learn how the universe works and how to use that knowledge to do cool and interesting stuff.
