Biography
I am an engineer by training and a high school teacher by calling. After earning degrees in Mechanical Engineering from UAB (BS, 1991) and Duke University (MS, 1993 and PhD, 1996), I started my high school teaching career in the Birmingham, Alabama area. In 2003 I began developing a four-year engineering curriculum for The Engineering Academy at Hoover High School which was launched a year later. The Engineering Academy curriculum has been designed to mirror the first two years of an undergraduate engineering program. I serve as the Director of The Engineering Academy at Hoover, where I have taught all four of the engineering courses and teach a two-year Calculus-based Physics sequence. I also served as as an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UAB for 10 years teaching various Electrical Circuits courses for undergraduate engineering students. I am also the Founder & CEO of Catapult Engineering Academy. Catapult Engineering Academy offers online college-prep engineering courses to students in home, public, and private schools.
