Day Job: High School Principal

As a native son of Colorado, I graduated from Arvada West High School and then received a BA in English from Colorado State University. I moved to California and spent several years teaching and coaching in middle and high school before moving back to Colorado where I have continued a career in education currently as a high school principal. I graduated with an MA in Special Education from California State University and a Ph.D. in Education Administration from the University of Denver.  I was very lucky to meet and marry my wife Laurie almost 25 years ago and we have raised three wonderful children.
