I have been a Technology Education/STEM teacher, at the State College Area High School, since September 1993. I am graduate of Millersville University (Magna Cum Laude), with a Bachelor of Science degree in Technology Education.  My wife and I have a daughter, who will is currently a sophomore, at State High, and is in my Advanced Computer Graphics class. Over the years I have been involved with teaching courses for the Community Education program, middle school summer camps, PDE graduate classes, for teachers, through the Local IU No.10, and I am a ASM Master Teacher.  These classes have been in the areas of visual communications, STEM, and multimedia.  At State High, I have taught Drafting and Design, Applied Materials, Video/Film Technology, and I am currently the primary Computer Engineering Graphics and Design Teacher.
What I did last summer:
Spent time with my family.
I helped plan the first ever Maker Fair in State College, PA, held at Schlow Library and surrounding business locations August 24-29.
I taught a "Maker" class for teachers here at Mount Nittany Middle School.
I co-taught, with Mr. Ron Shealer,  the first ever ASM Additive Manufacturing Class at Carnegie Mellon University and Penn State University.
We then went on to teach this camp at a very well equipped Community College in Cleveland, OH (Tri-C)

Currently we are working with the CIMP-3D lab at ARL, to develop curriculum connections with our Additive Manufacturing Units, tied to engineering fields at PSU.


I am looking forward to a great year, filled with exciting projects.

And, new to our Computer Graphics maker space is the Ultimaker 2, thanks to funds provided by Dantes Inc.
