My wife, Debbie, and I came to Fort Collins in 1995 and have called this home ever since! We both met while studying abroad in college at Daystar University in Nairobi, Kenya. After completing my degree in Elementary Education at Messiah College in Harrisburg, PA, I started teaching in a 4th-6th grade classroom at Hillcrest Community School in Bloomington, MN. After one year there, we moved to Fort Collins, where I taught 5th and 6th grades at Tavelli Elementary. During that time I completed my Master's degree in Educational Leadership. I started my principalship at Werner in 2006 and have been here since. It is a real blessing to lead and serve this amazing community. I love spending my free time with my wife and our girls Carolynne, Lizzie, and Katie. I also enjoy golf, fishing, and watching sports.
