I am originally from Dracut, Massachusetts but moved to Stillwater, Oklahoma to attend Oklahoma State University. I moved to Texas after graduation and have lived here since 2007. My responsibilities include overseeing the Secondary program at Esprit, assisting with general school administration and coaching flag football and basketball. I love the outdoors and physical activity. You will routinely find me outside throwing the ball around with students. I try to make it back to the New England area as often as possible with my wife, Ashley, and my daughter, Avery. I am also an avid sports fan. The students quickly learn about my favorite teams as well as my favorite color. Esprit has become a second home to me. I love that I have the opportunity to get to know my students and bond with them over the course of years. It has been so rewarding to get to see students enter the program in 7th grade and watch them as they grow and mature into confident young adults ready to take on the world! I feel privileged to be a part of this community of dedicated educators, wonderful students and supportive parents. I hope to see your child on our campus someday soon!
