Welcome to my site. Let me start by telling you a little about myself. I am the married father of five. My wife, Laura, and I met in high school and will soon celebrate our sixteenth wedding anniversary. Isaac, our oldest and most studious, is a freshman at Mingus. Elias is twelve and full of spunk and moxie. Isabel, ten, is our sweet yet impish one. Gabe, is precocious and the most sociable of the group. Oliver, our youngest, is 8 months old and smiles more than he sleeps.
I have been teaching English here at Mingus for twelve 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.
