I am a product of this district, having attended Cherry Drive Elementary, Northglenn Jr. High, and Thornton High School. I have been a resident of Firestone for the past 15 years along with my wife, Sheli (who also is an educator at Frederick H.S.), daughters Kyla, Sage, and Gabrielle.
I am a PE teacher and coach (Softball, Unified Basketball) at Horizon High School, and have worked in the Adams 12 Five Star School District since 1993. Since 1991, I have held high school coaching positions in softball, boys and girls’ basketball, football, and baseball.
I hold a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Economics (Tabor College) and a master’s in Human Performance and Physical Education (Adams State University).
As a educator, we have this unique ability to help shape students and the future. Being part of this change is what drives me. “Where the needs of the world and your talents cross, there lies your vocation.” - Aristotle
