Hello! I am the Chemistry teacher at Troy since 1997. I was born and raised in the area and graduated from Canton High School in 1984. I attended Penn State University (DuBois) for 1 semester. When I came up short for the funds for the second semester, I joined the Navy and completed their nuclear power program and served 2 years on the attack submarine USS Pasadena (SSN-752). I moved back to the area and obtained a job as boiler operator at Mansfield University. I worked there for 6 years as I went to school full time with a dual major of Chemistry and Physics. I worked as a chemist a Corning Inc. before coming to Troy.
I currently live in Mansfield with my wife of 30 years (she is a math teacher at Mansfield High School) and 2 of our 4 children. My oldest daughter is a Spanish teacher at Northern Potter School District and my oldest son is a building contractor.
