Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice
It was always my goal to pursue a position teaching in a Secondary Education environment following my first career as an Army Officer.  I believe that military veterans bring a wealth of experience to the classroom and have the potential to make a significant, positive impact on students' lives.

Personal Interests
In my spare time, I enjoy professional reading of historical materials and historical miniature wargaming. I also enjoy spending time with my wife and children.
