I work at Sage Creek High School in Carlsbad, CA as an architecture teacher for an introductory project based class on architecture and design concepts.
I enjoy taking pride in whatever I'm working on, and I'm constantly looking for ways to improve what I'm doing or how I'm doing it. I'm a very fast learner and am very curious to learn new things. I try to find something interesting or fun in whatever I'm working on too, as there are much better results when someone is personally invested in a task. A former employer described me as solid and disciplined. He noticed those traits at the first interview, and they were one of the reasons he hired me.
Specialties: Good knowledge of science and engineering concepts and left-brained thinking for the architectural world, as well as right-brained design thinking.
