BGS Geography 1987
Primary office:


I still have no more idea of how to find a job in Geography than I did when I graduated. If anything, my travels to Japan, Korea, and China have only strengthened my interest in the field. I am planning to get back into teaching at the middle school level next year if I am accepted into the alternative certification program here in Fort Worth. My wife, Dr. Haiqiong Riggs, and I remain huge KU fans from afar. We are hoping to find tickets for the A&M basketball game.
