About Me


This is year 23 at Forest Dale Elementary. It’s hard to believe how quickly  the years have seemed to passed. Each new class brings elements of excitement, challenge, and joy.

I grew up in Cincinnati and love to visit my parents and sister’s family, who still live there, when I can. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in English from DePauw University where I met my wife, Laura. I received my Elementary Teaching Certification from Xavier University and my Masters in Education from Anderson.

My wife, Laura, teaches Environmental Science in Lawrence Township. My daughter, Emma, is a senior at Fishers High School, while Harrison, my son, is a sophomore. There is also a Shetland Sheepdog, Kipper, that roams the rooms and yards of our home in Fishers. His adopted sister's name is Brindy, a Jack Russel/Boston Terrier mix.

I find it necessary to run, which I actually don’t enjoy all that much. I love music and listen to a wide range which could include The Avett Brothers, Jimmy Buffett, or Toots Hibbert, among many others, depending on the day, time, or accompanying activity. I started taking lessons on the guitar, my first instrument ever! Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks?
