The 21-22 year will be my 18th year teaching science to middle school students and my 7th year at Summit Academy.  I am proud to be one of the original teachers from the Independence junior high's opening back in 2015.

I earned a bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse with a degree in Microbiology (Chemistry minor) way back in the 1990s. I also earned a master's degree in Secondary Education from the University of Phoenix in 2007.

My wife and I moved to Utah back in 2001 and have really grown to love living in Utah and the greater Salt Lake City area. We have two awesome daughters and two goofy Olde English Bulldogges.  We are a big sports family and were fortunate enough to have both of my daughters play college soccer.
