PADI Divemaster #173399

   I have been a high school and college educator for 30 years and in Virginia almost 10 years.  I currently teach chemistry at Western Albemarle High School and marine biology courses at Piedmont Virginia Community College.

   I have always had a passion for nature study and outdoor activities and I have been lucky to include this passion in my teaching.  I directed backpacking / ecology courses for high school students for 10 years before an overwhelming interest in marine biology caused me to change my emphasis to marine ecosystems.

   I have been a diver for 20 years.  I am a divemaster.  For me diving is a tool to observe and study the biodiversity of the oceans and to pass my passion on to others.

   Teaching is also a lifelong passion.  In the last 2 years eighty high school students and adults have received college credit for my marine biology courses.  I have many varied interests, many related to water sports: backpacking and hiking, kayaking and sailing, biking, scuba and snorkeling, and my favorite indoor sport-racquetball.
