I am a fellow that has worn many hats over my life. I started out as a Geology Professor in Tennessee, then moved to Florida to teach 6th grade Earth Science at a private school in Clearwater. I then moved back to Tennessee to teach middle school science for a couple of years before becoming a park ranger at Carlsbad Caverns National Park. Teaching has always been my first love and that has lead me to Houston, Texas - teaching geology to college students. Having the "travel bug", I just returned from a great trip to China. Now I'm planning the next one!
