I am excited to be part of the Lancer family and part of a community that prioritizes Christ and strives for excellence in all they do. I received my bachelor’s degree and master’s in Educational Leadership from Florida State University. However, don’t worry Gator fans, my wife went to University of Florida, so I appreciate both institutions. My career in education began in 2007 at Farnell Middle School here in Hillsborough County. I remained there for 11 years and taught various Social Studies courses, while also serving as a team leader and PLC coordinator. I sought additional leadership and professional experiences at Sligh Middle Magnet and Wilson Middle school, while completing the Future Leaders Academy and master trainer programs.
My amazing wife Julie and I have been married for 13 years. We have 2 girls who currently attend the Lower School and both have been Lancers since they were in diapers. Anabella will be moving into 3rd grade and Ellie will be in first grade. We welcomed our third daughter, Abigail, into the world last year and I feel fortunate and blessed to be a father of 3 girls!!! Outside of school you can find me involved with music at my church or in the great outdoors.
