About me

I began my navy career at the Naval Academy with the great class of 1981. I studied Physics and after graduation became a submarine officer. My professional history is listed below. Following graduate school at NPS, Monterey, I became a Permanent Military Professor. I have taught Youngster Physics (SP211/2), Electricity and Magnetism I (SP222), Electricity and Magnetism II (SP342), Acoustics (SP436) and Underwater Acoustics and Sonar (SP411). I'm a former volleyball player, current national referee, and have served as O-rep for both the men's and women's volleyball teams.
