Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelor of Fine Arts, Shepherd College
I'm a graduate of Shepherd College (University) with a Bachelors of Fine Arts. Currently, I'm enrolled in the Master of Arts in Teaching program at Shepherd University and plan to graduate in December 2018. Before becoming a teacher I worked for several years as a graphic designer and then as a web developer. I decided to become a teacher because I see the value of an art education for all students.
My wife, Arden, is a teacher at Hedgesville Middle School. We have four children: Dylan, Sam and his wife Courtney, and Claire.
I enjoy spending time hiking, kayaking, and getting together with my family.
