Doug grew up in Southern California and went to school at UC Riverside, obtaining his Bachelor’s in English. During his time at UCR, he contributed to campus events by starting a Scrabble club and writing a weekly column for “The Highlander,” the school newspaper.
Doug spent several years after college working at a nonprofit animal shelter in New York before returning to the Golden State. Previously working as a substitute teacher (K-12) all around the Bay Area, Doug’s lifelong passion has been helping others. He’s very excited to join the ranks of the Fusion family as an English and Language Arts teacher!
Doug loves reading, writing, animals, nature, music, sports, games, food, fitness and gardening. Originally from Southern California, he’s made San Francisco home since 2011.
