About me

I'm originally from Georgia but may as well be a Florida native as I have been here for the last 28 years. Last year, I earned my MFA in Creative Non-Fiction and have doctoral-degree aspirations. I have been with UHS for three years now and look forward to working with a new class of young people every year. In my personal life, I am a Crossfit athelete, aspiring writer, graphic designer, amateur chef, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practioner. Additionally, I am a life-long martial artist having taught, and earned, instructor credentials in Kenpo, Judo, Aikido, Tae Kwon Do, and have acrtively competed in submission wrestling and in local karate tournament circuits. Athletics and discipline are but a few of my passions as I am a gamer (and collector of gaming memorabilia) as well. 

Furthermore, I am a husband of 12 years and father to beautiful 11 and 10 year-old daughters. My desire to be a role-model for them is as strong as it is to be one for mystudents and I strive daily to impart the importance of a lettered, educated, and professional self-presentation in everyday life.  

Here's to a great year, and many afterward!
