I am originally from Spokane, and later lived in Sunnyside, WA, for 14 years, where I met my wife, Ellen. Our three children attended Sunnyside Christian School until we moved to Maple Valley in 2002. My teaching career began in 1987 at Sunnyside High School. After teaching in public high schools for 14 years, I came to ECS in 2003 as a middle school teacher. I am currently teaching 7th/8th grade History and English Language Arts.
I enjoy spending time with my wife and our three adult children, traveling, watching the Seahawks, Mariners, Husky football, and Gonzaga basketball. I also enjoy reading, listening to music, watching movies, and playing games. Ellen and I worship at New Community Church in Maple Valley.
