Education fosters awareness, which generates appreciation. Learn how to observe the Earth through tactile & visual experience. 
 
I present Earth Science knowledge to schools, teachers, parents, & perpetual students through through multimedia presentations, lesson plans, scientific inquiry, and natural science field trips.
I am based in Santa Rosa, CA and focus on teaching in the Northern San Francisco Bay Area. I spend a majority of my time teaching geology at Sonoma State University.
