I was born in Omaha, Nebraska and grew up in the state of North Dakota. I attended university first in Kansas City, Missouri then moved to Beaumont, Texas to complete my degree at Lamar University. I am married (Jeanne) and have a daughter (Reagan).
I have been an employee of Fort Bend ISD since 2008, beginning my career at Elkins High School (US History, AP World History, Economics). In 2010 I transferred to Clements High School and instructed Economics and Government for two years. In 2012 I moved to AP Macroeconomics and when the district added AP Microeconomics in 2014 I began to teach that topic as well. I began coaching Football and Track at Clements High School in 2011.
