Welcome to my site. Let me start by telling you a little about myself. I am the married father of four (and one on the way). My wife, Laura, and I met in high school and will soon celebrate our fifteenth wedding anniversary. Isaac, our oldest and most studious, is an eighth grader at St. Joseph's Catholic School. Elias is eleven and full of spunk and moxie. Isabel, nine, is our sweet yet impish one. Our youngest, Gabe, is precocious and the most sociable of the group.
I have been teaching English here at Mingus for eleven years. After graduating high school from Mingus--yes, I'm a Cottonwood native--I went on to get a BA in Secondary Education-English at Arizona State University and a Master's of Fine Arts in Poetry at Northern Arizona University.
Besides teaching English, I also coach Mingus Wrestling.
