I earned my Undergraduate degree from K-State and my Masters from Baker. 1992 was my first year at Topeka High School teaching English. I currently teach Speech and Broadcast Journalism and on the School's Equity Council and Technology team. Beyond teaching, I've been the Announcer for Men's and Women's basketball for 21 years. I work Props for the Drama Department on the Plays and Musicals, and I sponsor the Step Team and Anime club. I've been married for 19 years to my wonderful wife Mary, who is a Registered Nurse, and we have two children, Olivia Jo and Dino. During those rare moments of freedom, I like Sci-Fi, gaming with my son, and embarrassing my daughter in front of her friends.
