Personal Life: 
I currently live in Wylie (near Dodd) and have a beautiful wife and 5 kids (4 daughters and the youngest child is a 5-year-old boy). My oldest daughter, Lucy, is will be a senior in my class this year, and Eva is a sophomore on campus. 
 
I was born in Rhode Island, went to high school in New Jersey, spent time in Venezuela as a missionary, went to college in Utah, taught in Houston where I also worked in Apple retail for a time. My family moved to Wylie in 2010 and I have been at East ever since. I also spent several years teaching a computer class for adults on Excel at the Wylie library, so I may know some of my students' parents from there. 
 
As hobbies, I enjoy singing, playing guitar, ultimate frisbee, computers, electronics, creating awkward situations, and wholesome comedy.
