I grew up in Omaha, Nebraska and went to University of Nebraska at Kearney to study chemistry. Heading west, I stopped in Tempe, Arizona for a master's degree at Arizona State. Finally, I arrived in an interdisciplinary PhD between botany, computer science and chemistry at University of California Riverside. I studied antioxidants in pomegranate juice, how plants survive a flood, chemical warfare between insects and plants, and aromas of citrus fruits.

For the last several years, I have focused my energy on education. In 2016, I co-founded a 501(c)(3) non-profit to teach people how to bring bikes on trains, called Bikecar101. I am co-advisor of the CSUN Chemistry and Biochemistry Club, doing hands-on experiments with hundreds of kids each year. I am proud to teach at an institution that is a national leader in sustainability efforts. Go Matadors!
