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 9-year-old boy). My oldest daughters, Lucy and Eva, graduated from East and are studying at BYU, while Julianne is a sophomore here. 
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 few years. 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.
