Personal Life: 
You may see me riding my bike to or from school, as I live a few blocks from Dodd elementary. I ride with a smile because I am listening to an audiobook either on my way to a job I feel is valuable or am on my way home to a beautiful wife and 5 kids (4 daughters and the youngest child is a 5-year-old boy). My oldest daughter, Lucy, is actually a junior in my class this year, and Eva is a freshman 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.
