 I am a 1985 graduate of Springfield South. I married my beautiful wife Jean in 1991. She teaches P.E. at Rolling Hills. Our oldest daughter is in college, We have two children who currently attend Northeastern schools. My family has lived in the district since 1997. I earned my degree from Urbana University. I am a huge sports fan who will play and watch just about any sport. I have coached several sports at the middle and high school levels. I have coached the golf and bowling teams for several years and enjoy both tremendously. Spending time with my wife and children is what I like to do more than anything. It’s great being at Northeastern!!

I grew up in Fairborn, Ohio and attended Miami University where I obtained my B.A. in Social Studies Education. I began my teaching career here at Northeastern High School in 2010. I teach American Government, Sociology, and Psychology. In addition to teaching, I am also the advisor for NEHS’s chapter of National Honor Society.

I currently live in Fairborn with my golden doodle, Zoe. In my free time I enjoy reading, baking, and spending time with my family and friends.
