I have been teaching at Quest for three years. I live in West Haven and have a wife and three daughters. My wife teaches fourth grade at Quest. I am a graduate of Weber State University with a B.S. in Special Education with an emphasis in Math. Prior to college, I retired from the United States Air Force after a full 20 year military career where I served in Texas, Mississippi, Georgia, South Korea, Montana, Louisiana and Utah. I have also been deployed to Germany, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Iraq.
I enjoy reading, watching movies, going to Lagoon and attending Weber State and Utah Jazz basketball games. I love this school, the students that I teach and am excited to see the growth that we can achieve together.
