  • Interests: Reading, military strategy games, classic science fiction films
  • Why Cedarville: I came back to Cedarville because I wanted to teach at a place where I could easily discuss my faith with my students and integrate biblical truth into my chemistry lectures. I also appreciate that I can openly pursue my research on the geochemistry of Noah's Flood.
