•    I was born in Orange, CA but shortly moved with my family to Plano, TX where I grew up and went to school. I graduated from Plano Senior High School (with a graduating class of roughly 1300 students!) and then went to the University of North Texas where I eventually met my wife, Megan. We both currently live nearby in Denton and welcome the opportunity to influence the lives of people with teaching and music.

       In my free time I play hockey on a DFW recreational team with a group of game developers in the area (as there are several video game companies located in the DFW metroplex) on the weekends. Additionally, I am an avid fan of motorcycles, having owned and ridden one ever since I was in high school. I currently ride a 2007 "Pearl Vigor Blue" (the fastest color) Suzuki SV650S. I also am an avid gamer, both in digital and board games. 

    This is my third year in Ponder ISD and I look forward to working with all of the students this coming year!
