My wife and I have been residents of Oxford since 1999 and both of our daughters attend school here as well.

I enjoy traveling, photography, playing soccer in my men's league, fishing, backpacking and spending time with my family.

I like being able to share my travel experiences in my classroom to give my students a unique perspective of our fascinating world.  Growing up as a son to a Navy Master Chief gave me the opportunity to live in and travel most of Europe, the Caribbean, North Africa and every corner of the United States.  Those experiences truly enhance the learning that takes place in our classroom. 

I currently coach Boys' Varsity Soccer.  I've been the boys' varsity soccer coach since 2002.  During that time I've lead the program to SIX district titles and TWO league titles.  I have also been named District Coach of the Year six times (2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2014).
