I am the welding teacher at JELCC. I have been welding for 22 years. I have welded everything from fuel nozzles for massive generators to training facilities, and targets for the military. When working with students I enjoy seeing that light turn on when they make a great weld. Outside of school, I enjoy coaching softball, be outdoors, and spending time with my wife and kids.
