Indiana is my childhood home, and I'll always root for the Colts. My wife and I got married in 2011, and since then we have explored the world. We love to travel and have lived and worked in South Korea and the United Arab Emirates. Our son, Owen, was born in the UAE and we decided to move back to the US to be closer to family. Family is everything, and I can't describe to you how excited I am for the birth of our son, Kian, around the end of September of this year.
Geekdom is where it's at! I could watch a Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Star trek, Marvel or Harry Potter movie any night of the week. Documentaries, books, legos or board games are very suitable substitute. However, my favorite moments are any time that I get with my family.

Anyone can learn, and we constantly are. The process of learning is incredible because what we learn comes from infinite sources and infinite reasons. Learning history is crucial to understanding the context of the present moment. I say to the students on the first day, "All of history has led to you." Despite almost all of the content that we cover happening before the birth of my students, the connections from the past to the present are seemingly endless. Students also need many skills to help them throughout their academic careers and later on in life. From research to presentations to exploring philosophy to debates, I strive to foster growth as people, not just students trying to pass a class.
