I am a native West Virginian, where I grew up in the small town of Sistersville. I then attended
West Virginia University, majoring in Political Science and Economics. I later went back so that I
could teach secondary mathematics.
I met my wife of 10 years on the debate team in college. As she was the captain, and I was not, I knew what I signed up for in the marriage.
I am currently entering my 9th year of teaching. I have taught in alternative, traditional, and
charter school settings around the state, working in Scotland, Moore, Guilford, and Alamance
county schools as well as with Pittsburgh Public Schools (in PA.)
My wife and I moved to Alamance County in 2011, and we truly feel at home in this community.
In my "spare" time, I like to relax with my wife of 12 years, my son, and my Pekingnese.
I enjoy working-out, science-fiction, video games (PS4, XB1, and PC), and sports (especially the Steelers, Penguins, or any WVU sport).
