I grew up in Montgomery, West Virginia and attended Valley High School.  My undergraduate and Master’s degrees were obtained at West Virginia University.  In 1994, I began working with the WV Bureau for Public Health, Office of Laboratory Services as a clinical microbiologist; identifying organisms of both clinical and epidemiological importance.

In 2006, I joined the faculty of the School of Pharmacy; primarily instructed in the laboratory courses of Biochemistry, Immunology and Pharmaceutical Compounding,  Currently, I still offer those courses, as well as lecturing in topics involving Infectious Disease, Public Health, Social and Behavioral Health, and Communications.

My residence is in Clendenin, a small town north of Charleston, with my wife and two sons.  Both of my sons are involved in sports and with our church.
