I am a Colorado native, and a proud alumnus of Dakota Ridge High School. After my education, 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). 

I have an amazing family including a beautiful wife and two angelic toddlers; Ellie & Evelyn. 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.
