I am a Colorado native, and a proud alumnus of Dakota Ridge High School. Early in my career, I helped open and build Vista PEAK Preparatory, a school of innovation within Aurora Public Schools. During my tenure at Vista PEAK, I taught Business/Marketing courses, was an adjunct professor with the Community College of Aurora, and was both an instructional and athletic coach (Basketball, Golf, Volleyball). 

For the last six years, I've been the scheduler here at Dakota Ridge High School. I work alongside the counseling and world language departments, and also oversee our CTE and Concurrent Enrollment programs. 

I have an amazing family including a beautiful wife and three angelic toddlers; Ellie, Evelyn, and Emilia. I am honored to be back with the Dakota Ridge Family and am privileged to work alongside some of the top educators and administrators in the state.
