I am a skilled programmer with passion for teaching and training others. I have had substantial experience in both teaching and programming. I have had a solid education and I would be a great asset to any company needing extra programming, computer training, or design work. I am especially valuable during the summer months when school is out. You need me on your team.


Obtain summer, and part-time employment helping local companies with their programming, web development, and design needs.


Outside of Teaching and Programming I have many interests and people that help make me who I am.


I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Everything good that has ever come to me I owe to the truths I have learned from my participation and service in the Lord's church. Before going to college, I served for 2 years teaching the gospel of this church to many people in Seattle Washington.


I have been happily married for 9 years to a smart and beautiful woman. I am the father of 5 wonderful children, 1 girl and 4 boys. They are the most important treasures I have, they are my motivation. I base all my decisions around my family. I try to keep a healthy balance between work and family.


I love to stay active, I play basketball regularly, and I am an avid Jazz fan. In addition to teaching at Pine View High School I am actively involved as an adviser to the Ping Pong, Ultimate Frisbee, and Chess club. I also love singing, I have had many awesome informal trainers and I am not afraid to sing in front of an audience.

Work experience

Washington County School District

I am currently teaching Computer Programming I and II in C++ and Python using the Xcode environment, Web Development I and II in HTML/CSS/Javascript/PHP using Dreamweaver and basic web servers, and Multimedia Design I and II using Photoshop, Illustrator, and Flash.

Oct 2007Present

Web Programmer


I help out InfoWest part-time developing customized applications for customer websites. I specialize in content management solutions using the Django framework built in Python. I also develop and fix many websites and applications using PHP. I have set up many PHP opensource applications such as Joomla, Wordpress, and Moodle.


Part-time Faculty

The programming courses I teach at the High School level are offered as a concurrent credit for the beginning programming courses at Dixie College, so I have been able to help out at the college once in a while, teaching the beginning programming night/summer courses. This year I am teaching cs1400 during the summer semester.


Web Programmer

Horizons Finance

I maintained and developed a Cold Fusion web application that was built around a large form to collect customer data needed to verify credit, finances, and populate a large legal PDF financial loan contract. I also spent some time developing a php application to keep track of vehicle titles and information.


Database Programmer

University of Uah - Geography Department DIGIT lab

During my senior year in my undergraduate program I was able to help the DIGIT lab with a major database project that documented all the data from a mine in New Mexico. The database was getting way too big for MS Access, and I was on a team to normalize the database and convert it to MySQL and to MS SQL, create the Entity-Relationship Diagram, and export it to the MS SQL server.


Web Master

Salt Lake County Fire Department (Unified Fire Authority)

Re-designed and maintained, and updated the fire department web page using Adobe Go-Live. It was a great learning experience for me as I matured as a programmer and began my study of web programming. The site that I designed has been replace in the last few years. The fire-department is an exciting place to work.



State of Utah - Division of Finance

During my early college years I was able to create many computer based training (CBT) courses used to teaching state employees the state's custom financial software. I built the CBT's using an authoring tool I learned in High School called Quest (similar to ToolBook). Quest has since been overpowered by programs like Flash and Director, but it was a great tool for creating interactive training courses. The state still uses some of my lessons internally in that department. I used Photoshop and Illustrator for much of the images and design.


Programming, Web Development
Since my work at the Division of Finance I have had programming and web development experience in a variety of different languages and development environments, and have come to adapt quickly to new opportunities to program and develop for the web.   My Experience includes: Intensive study of programming languages, algorithms, and data structures Specialized courses with operating systems, databases, and networking Specific experience with Python, C++, C, Java, Scheme, Visual Basic Diverse experience with web programming: Django, Plone, PHP, Cold Fusion, JSP, ASP, Javascript, CSS, HTML, XML, SQL, Apache, Zope Various experience with design using: Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, Dreamweaver, GoLive, Fireworks, Acrobat Reader
I will begin my 5th year Teaching in the Washington County School District this year.
