Lover of Nature, animals, and my fellow human beings. I was homeschooled K-12 while growing up in Michigan and working in my family’s chocolate shop. I have always had a passion for music and art. After a two-year service mission in Chile, I got a bachelor's degree in Art Education with a minor in Spanish. I then taught Spanish and Art around Tampa Bay Florida for five years.
      My wife Luz and I have been homeschooling our four girls, and since 2017 the six of us have been performing in our family reggae band around SF Bay and Santa Cruz. Along with music, art, and teaching I also authored and illustrated two books; one about taking care of the Earth, and one about philosophy and metaphysics.
      I see all humans as my equals. So as a teacher, I share what I know in a down-to-earth fashion. Teaching at the Santa Cruz Learning Center is great for that kind of individualized learning that can be adapted to the needs and levels of each student.
