Welcome to Travis, Home of the Tigers. Mr. Russell and I are your Project Lead The Way FBISD CTE teachers on campus. During the 2020-2021 academic year, I will teach Introduction to Engineering Design and Engineering Design and Development. Fall 2019 marked the start of my career at Travis High School and I consider myself lucky to be in this role and a part of this family. In addition, I am proud to be a member of FBISD, home to more than 90 languages and dialects spoken.
I am a husband and father - these two executive roles are second to none. I received my Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Wichita State University. Prior to my career in education, I was a Product Design Engineer at Textron Aviation for 4 years designing access panels on wing tips, hydraulic installations, redesigning flight control rigging tools and drafting wire routing installations. I also worked in Oil and Gas Industry designing sampling and instrumentation systems and probe assemblies for crude oil, natural gas and light liquids. The sampling equipment was designed to draw a sample from the center of the pipeline and maintain its pipeline conditions during transportation for lab analysis.
I am looking forward to a productive, empowering and exciting school year at Travis!
I am an avid soccer fan, in particular Arsenal Football Club. Let's talk all things soccer - UEFA Champions League, English Premier League, La Liga, Italian Serie A, etc. I also enjoy playing basketball, running and traveling.
