This 1988 graduate of Central Michigan University and Flint area native landed in Kent City after college. Shocking! I am still a little stunned about it, but am glad. I am married to my college sweetheart and we have three awesome daughters. As an educator, I have spent the bulk of my career in Sparta teaching at the high school. Before that I taught in Fruitport, Ravenna, and Grand Rapids Ottawa Hills. As a Business and Computer teacher I have taught classes in Accounting, Intro to Business, Computers for Success, Programming, and AP Computer Science Principles. As long as I have taught, I have been lucky enough to coach. I have worked with a lot of students coaching football, wrestling, and track (pole vault) at the middle school level all the way up to varsity. I am currently the Dean of Students at Sparta High School and coach middle school football, wrestling, and track. My job is awesome!
Crazy things about me that you might not know are that I delivered my first daughter in the garage, have written several educational books that have been published, love to travel, and would love to learn to play the guitar. Find out more about me on social media. I am on the accounts below.
Some of my latest projects.
Just call me awesome. (I'm trying!)
