I was born and raised in southwestern Virginia.  I have a BS in psychology with a minor in political science from Virginia Tech, and an MA in secondary education with a concentration in math from West Virginia University.  I have 13 years of teaching experience, 12 in Virginia and 1 in Idaho.

My wife, Angel, and I have been married for 13 years.  We have 3 dogs and a crested gecko.

After living (and teaching) in Virginia for the first 12 years after we got married, we decided to move west in 2015.  We tried Idaho for a year, but that wasn't the fit that we were looking for, so we moved to the Moore area in 2016.  We are very excited to be here.
