About me

Gender MALE
Introduction I am a graduate student at UCSB in their Teacher Education Program. I hope to have completed an SST teaching credential in Social Science and an M.Ed. by the end of summer 2012. Before that I was a youth worker at a church in Ventura, CA. My undergrad was at Westmont College with a degree in music and a minor in history. I want to be both physically and mentally fit and work hard to continually learn new things and exercise. A few interesting facts about me: I ran a marathon, I was on a soap opera in the 1980s, I have a twin brother.
