I earned my Bachelors of Science Degree from Oakland University (OU) and Masters in Leadership from Saginaw Valley State University.

I also graduated from the OU Leadership Institute, a program designed to further develop the members' leadership skills and increase their contributions to their community.

I taught in New Zealand through a teacher exchange program. Since 2008, I have been a math, science, and literacy teacher in the Chippewa Valley Schools.

My academic career and experiences have inspired me to mentor others. I mentored students at OU. I received university honors: Summa Cum Laude and Keeper of the Dream Award.

I am dedicated to student success. I serve on the OU School of Education and Human Resources Development Board, Young Alumni Council, and Michigan-Shiga High School Exchange Committee.

I was recently named a Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) Digital Innovator and a fellow for the America Achieves’ Michigan Educator Voice Fellowship.

My wife, Sarah, is an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Sciences (Pharmacology) at OU. We just recently became parents to our beautiful baby girl, Emily Claire. We are in love!

Why do I teach, you ask? I teach, because it is a highly rewarding profession. We share valuable information and important skills to encourage a love of learning that will serve students.

I do this work because I am committed to having a positive impact on the future of each student that I serve. You can click the button above to visit my website. Feel free to checkout my social links.

I support educators with branding, media, and writing. Let's grab a coffee, sit down in a relaxed atmosphere and bounce ideas around. I want to hear your story.
