I am starting my fourth year at Norris High School and 17th year overall in education.  Currently, I am teaching American History 9 and Modern Problems.  Prior to arriving at Norris, I taught 9-12 social studies at Columbus High School for five years and 7th & 8th grade social studies at Central City Middle School.  Along with my teaching assignment, I will enter my fourth year as the Head Boys Varsity Basketball Coach and 17th season overall.

After graduating from Lincoln Northeast High School in 2001, I attended Creighton University in Omaha where I was a member of the men's basketball team from 2002-2006 and was a part of two NCAA tournament and two NIT tournament teams. 

I am a sports fanatic, especially college football & basketball.  I enjoy following all Creighton Bluejay athletic teams, Colorado Rockies Baseball and Hawaii Football.  I enjoy traveling and checking out new destinations across Nebraska and the country.

My wife Mackenzie is a kindergarten teacher here at Norris and we have two children, along with our dog, Cosmo.  Our son Jayce (age 8) is a 2nd grader and daughter Maguire (age 5) is a future Titan in waiting!
