I joined the staff at Wayne College in the spring of 2004 and have taught a wide range of geology classes.

Prior to teaching at Wayne I worked as a geologist for a local oil & gas exploration company for nearly 15 years. I was responsible for drilling 100's of wells in eastern Ohio and western Pennslyvania.
