I am a proud Berkeley County native. After graduating from Marshall University (Go Herd!!) in 2002, I moved back to the area to begin my teaching career.  In my spare time, I enjoy playing and watching sports, reading, and playing the guitar.  I also have a passion for traveling. My wife and I have visited 37 countries, and we plan to visit more. Some of our favorite destinations include Easter Island, Turkey, New Zealand, and the Czech Republic. This past summer, we welcomed a new edition to our family. Our son Luke was born on June 8. I am looking forward to an awesome school year!
