A Bit About "Bach"
I have been immersed in Technology & Design Education all my life,
and learned how to create isometric sketches and architectural models
in my father's classroom in the afternoons and on teacher workdays when I
was in elementary school. My first job was running a letterpress,
burning plates, and collating and power-stapling the pages of an
environmental magazine together for hours on end in a little warehouse
outfit my dad put together.
I've lived in WNC for most of my life, although I grew up a young waterman
in Florida, spending my time swimming, surfing, fishing, and boating (I
left highschool on a swimming scholarship). When I was 12 we moved to
Western North Carolina to a 600 acre Adventure camp my parents owned and
ran. So I've raised my amazing family here in Asheville. I've been
married to my beautiful wife, Jenny for 16 years, and am the father of 4
sons: Zac, Isaiah, Gabe,
have taught as a Career & Technology teacher for NC public schools
for 6 years. I have been a certified PLTW Instructor for 3 years.
