I grew up in Bolivar, New York. A very small town about two hours south of Buffalo. From a very young age, I have always been drawn to an active lifestyle keeping myself busy playing all kinds of sports. I spent my high school years focusing on soccer, basketball, and baseball. I continued playing sports in college and it was then that I decided to pass along my passion for health / fitness to younger generations by becoming a teacher. I have spent the past four school years here, at Brent. Before arriving at DCPS I taught for four years in Fairfax, VA. In my free time, I enjoy Crossfit, golf, playing with my English Bulldog (Dozer), and spending time with my beautiful wife.
