Personal Message

I was born in Marion, Ohio and grew up in Worthington, Ohio.  I continued my education at Muskingum College after high school.  While attending Muskingum, I played football and ran track while also being a member of the MACE Club.  

After graduating I worked in education for numerous years before going back to school to get my Master's Degree.  I moved to Troy, Alabama to pursue my Master's Degree in History.  At Troy, I worked as a D1 track and field coach for two years.

In 2011, I moved to Beaufort, South Carolina and began working as a History teacher at Whale Branch Early College High School.  I have taught Civics, Economics, Government, Sociology, World Geography, and World History.  Currently, I am in charge of teaching the history college courses as part of our TCL program.  I also serve as the Department Chair and Head Track and Field Coach.  This is my 8th year at Whale Branch.

I currently live in Bluffton, South Carolina.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
