I have been teaching Adapted Kinesiology at Saddleback College since Fall 2007 and have been the chair/coordinator of the department since the Fall of 2009. Prior to joining Saddleback College, I worked as a physical therapist at Saddleback Hospital in a number of areas including critical care, acute rehabilitation, inpatient and outpatient therapy. I also have experience in other areas of physical therapy including outpatient orthopedics, subacute therapy, and home health. I have experience in a number of different health and wellness areas including CSULB Adapted Fitness and Wellness Center, Fresno City College and Irvine Valley College's Adapted Kinesiology Program. I serve as the Local Program Coordinator for the Special Olympics and chair CAPED's Adapted Physical Education CIG for Southern California. I live in San Clemente with my wife and two daughters.
