Education and Background

B.S. in Biology - Wake Forest University
M.S. and Ph.D. in Biology - University of South Carolina

My teaching career really began as a lab assistant in general biology labs at Wake
Forest University where I was a premed student. A teaching assistantship was available
at the University of South Carolina which led to research on brain enzymes while
working towards M. S. and Ph. D. degrees in Biology. I also earned money during
summers as a hospital orderly. It was during this period that I married Sarah, my wife.
After teaching biology for six years at Lander College, my wife, daughter and I left
Greenwood, South Carolina and came to Elon in 1977. My wife and I live in
Burlington with our poodle Snuggles. I enjoy outside activities such as biking, hiking,
and reading.
