I grew up in West Des Moines, Iowa, where I attended public schools until graduating from Valley High School. My next stop was Iowa State University, where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology as well as my teaching certificate. While a student at ISU, I gained my first taste of international travel while working with children through the Camp Adventure program. For that experience, I lived for a summer on Misawa Air Base near Misawa, Japan , working as a camp counselor for dependents of U.S. military personnel. I was fortunate enough to gain further international experience at the end of my time at Iowa State by practice teaching in Glasgow, Scotland.

After leaving Ames, I took up my first teaching post in Glenwood, Iowa as a science teacher at Glenwood Community High School. Two years later, I pursued my goal of teaching abroad, accepting a position at the American International School of Rotterdam in the Netherlands. There I taught high school and middle school science and math classes, including International Baccalaureate courses. After earning a Masters of Arts in K-12 Educational Administration through Michigan State University, I took on an administrative role at AISR by becoming the High School Coordinator.
During my nine years in the Netherlands, a few major events occurred in my life. The most important was that I married my wife, Jennifer. Our oldest two daughters were born during our time in Rotterdam. In 2006, we made the decision to move back to the United States where I accepted a science teaching position at Norris. We moved our young family to Lincoln, where our third daughter was born. The 2009-2010 school year marked my first year as a member of the Norris administration team. I am honored to serve the Norris community, and look forward to working with our students this year and in the future!
