As a former pubic school teacher and principal, I have been involved in education for over two decades. Teaching has always been my calling. The feeling of opening doors to the world for kids is nothing short of miraculous. Nothing can compare with the feeling I get when the lightbulb goes on for a student who has been struggling with a concept. I call it the “Ah-Ha” moment. Priceless. Making a difference in someone’s life gives me purpose. I love helping people.
A single father of two amazing children, I’m also a licensed realtor, an FAA-licensed drone pilot, a self-proclaimed nerd, a jack of all trades, and a master of none. I train in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, which works my whole person–mind, body, spirit, heart and soul–“The ground is my ocean and I am the shark.”

Favorite Quotation: “Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!–-Sylvester Stallone as Rocky Balboa
