Been attending Catholic schools since 1980; just finished my 19th year teaching organic chemistry at Detroit Mercy; interested in new carbon-carbon bond-forming reactions and innovative pedagogies; fierce student and faculty advocate; serve as chair of the school board where my three sons (11th, 7th, 3rd grades) attend (Royal Oak Shrine of the Little Flower); very happily married 24 years this year to Leslie; in spare time I like to spend time with family, play games, eat, read, cheer for the Tigers, and decorate for Halloween.
