My father was a Biology Professor at DVC. We spent summers vacationing in our VW Van, fishing and canoeing. My Grandfather owned a cement mixing business in Bend, Oregon. My Mom is from a tiny town called Huntington Oregon, pop. 120 maybe. She taught at Mary Farmar Elementary for 20 years. My grandpa used to always "scat" and introduced me to literature from Kipling to London. My wife and I are both teachers at Benicia High School. We have two sons, aged three and one.
