Welcome to my classroom!  After 20 years as a successful business professional, I left to pursue my dream of teaching and making a difference with our youth.  In addition to my related teaching experience, I also enjoy coaching.  I have coached a variety of sports over the years and I am currently assisting with the Girls Varsity Basketball team at Oxford High School.  My business background is in Information Technology as well as corporate training.  Given my professional background, I try to share insights with students on the benefits of education and how it can be applied and assist them in their everyday life.  Through my business experience, I learned that there is always a “bottom-line.” In teaching, the “bottom-line” is clear.  It is the educational success of your children!  I truly enjoy teaching! 

My focus each day is to help your child learn how to apply math in order to solve real-world problems.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family which includes my wife, two children (son and daughter), and our Chocolate Lab.  I am a sports enthusiast, an avid golfer, and I enjoy cooking.
