    About Me
    I am entering my fourteenth year in education, all in AISD. Before joining the team at ICHS, I taught advanced English classes at Manvel High School. I received a bachelor's degree in Literature from the University of Houston ~ Clear Lake, in addition to an associates degree in general studies from Alvin Community College and a Masters of Divinity from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. I am certified to teach secondary English in the State of Texas and have coached football and soccer in the past for MHS.
    I grew up in Danbury, but for two years my wife, Julia, and I lived in Lousiville, KY as I attended classes on campus at Sotuhern, and she taught math for Jefferson County Public Schools. After returning to Texas, my wife taught 7th grade Algebra at Nolan Ryan Junior High for three years. She is now a diagnostician for elementary schools in AISD. Before teaching, I served as a juvenile probation officer in Brazoria County for one year, and worked as a sales associate at RadioShack in Angleton for four years before that. I also worked part time at UPS and Lowe's in Louisville while I was attending seminary. 
    My wife and I have been married for 12 years and have three children, Liam, Renée, and Aiden. We both love to read, (though her love of math is lost on me). We have similar tastes in reading as we both enjoyed the Harry Potter and Hunger Games series as well as anything by Niel Shusterman. I always try to find time to read works for pleasure. I am also a bit of a sports nut, especially baseball and football, with my favorite two teams being the Houston Astros and Dallas Cowboys.
