I graduated from Green River High School in 1988 and the University of Wyoming in 1992 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics/Secondary Education. I earned my Master's degree in 2008 from the University of Phoenix with an emphasis on Supervision and Evaluation.

I am extremely proud to be an Assistant Principal at Green River High School. I have worked in the education field for 24 years and have enjoyed the journey immensely. I get to work everyday with a group of hard working, caring, and motivated individuals that make coming to work a pleasure. It is amazing to see people committed to helping students be successful and willing to do whatever is necessary to make that happen.

I worked for 19 years in Rock Springs teaching math and coaching football/wrestling. I then decided to come home so to speak even though I lived in Green River. This move was made to be able to spend more time at home with my family and to allow everyone to be on the same schedule.

My wife, Farrah, is also in education, as she teaches at Jackson Elementary. We have three children, Jensyn, Keenan, and Dominic. We are a very busy family, but we wouldn't trade all the chaos that comes our way daily for anything in the world.
