I teach science at the Collegiate School of Memphis, and I make science videos. If you find those videos helpful, the best thing you can do for me is to subscribe and leave comments on my videos on YouTube. I’ve also made a few personal videos, which you can find here.
I am a Missourian who emigrated to Memphis to become a teacher through the Memphis Teacher Residency. I’ve been teaching high school science since 2011 and providing curriculum and instruction support for other teachers at my school since 2017. I teach Anatomy & Physiology, Physics, and AP Chemistry.
Besides making videos, I also write fiction and play wheelchair basketball. I’ve written several short stories and might someday even write a novel. I’ve played wheelchair basketball at the college level and now for the Memphis Grizzlies Wheelchair Basketball Team.
I am married to my amazing and hard-working wife Carol, and we have a curious, adventurous daughter named Alondra.
I also have a permanent spinal cord injury, and I use a wheelchair to get around. Yes, I can open doors and drive a car. No, there is not a speed limit in the hallway. Yes, I have heard the speed limit jokes dozens of times, but no, wheelchairs are not cars. Yes, I have had strangers approach me wanting to pray for healing or tell me about how acupuncture can cure my spinal cord injury. Yes, those situations are always pretty awkward.
Here is a short video (that I didn’t make) about me and why Memphis is great:
