         Hello all!  I am excited to be here at Matapeake Elementary School!  I began teaching 2nd grade here in December 2015, so this will be my second full year at MES as a teacher.  I started the 2015-2016 school year as a Title I Teacher at Grasonville Elementary.  Prior to that I was the Reading Tutor for MES.

I graduated from the U. S. Coast Guard Academy with a BS in Physical Science/Chemistry and have obtained an MBA from Webster University.  I then graduated with honors from Liberty University with my Master's in Elementary Education.

After graduating from the Academy I spent just over 11 years in the Coast Guard as a ship driver and helicopter rescue pilot.  I was then hired by the Maryland State Police as a medevac pilot and Flight Instructor.  I recently retired after 20 years from the MD State Police in 2014 and turned to my passion; teaching!

My awesome wife, Nikki, and I will be celebrating our 2qst anniversary this year. We have two daughters who are the loves of my life. Ella (14) is in 9th grade at KIHS and Caitey (13) is in 7th grade at MMS.

            I enjoy doing many things in life, but most of all I enjoy life. But to be more specific, I enjoy reading, cycling, playing golf, and just about anything with my family. My two girls keep me busy.  I am constantly running them back and forth from dance/theater, softball, filed hockey, and music lessons.  I am a big Orioles fan and I have been a lifelong Vikings fan.
