He is an active member of the California Association of Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance (CAHPERD) and the Society of Health and Physical Educators (SHAPE- America). His primary areas of research include investigating online physical education (OLPE) and its implications regarding meeting the purpose of physical education, the use of technology in physical education, and youth physical activity levels during the school day. Additionally, he is a peer-reviewer for three professional journals (Strategies, JOPERD, and Journal of Online Learning Research).

Expertise, Research & Teaching Interests
Physical education teacher education (PETE) is my main area of expertise and I work with undergraduate and credential students in their journey to become teachers. My primary teaching areas of interest are the integration of technology in teaching, assessment of learning, using curricular models, and teaching elementary physical education. The research I conduct focuses on exploring online physical education (OLPE) and its implications regarding meeting the purpose of physical education. I also conduct research regarding technology in physical education and youth physical activity levels during the school day.
