He earned his BS in Engineering Physics from the United States Military Academy in 1986. He served as a US Army infantry officer in a variety of capacities until 1992, when he left active duty as an Airborne- and Ranger-qualified Captain.
In 1997 he earned his PhD in Physics from UAF and went on to teach high school mathematics and science in North Pole, Alaska, for the next eight years. It was at that time he became a faculty member at the GI and in the UAF Physics Department. He served in that capacity for ten years, as an Assistant and Associate Professor, ending with a three-year stint as the Department Chair.
