I grew up in Massachusetts having lived on the beaches of Cape Cod and the city of Boston. After graduating high school in 1998, I attended Tuskegee University. In 2002, I graduate from Tuskegee with a Bachelors of Art in English. Luckily for me, 2002 was also the same year I met my future wife. My wife and I were married in 2004 while I was working as an English and Math teacher at the John D. Connelly Center in Boston. In 2005, I became the lead Rhetoric and Literature teacher at the Uphams Corner Charter School in downtown Boston.
In 2009, my wife and I decided we should move back to Alabama where I began my graduate work at Troy University. During my this time, I taught ninth grade English Language Arts at the Booker T. Washington Magnet High School for the Arts in Montgomery, AL. I graduated from Troy with a Masters of Education in 2012. Then in 2013, I was lucky enough to discover Foley, AL and Foley Middle School where I have been working since.
In addition to teaching eighth grade English Language Arts, I also coach boys soccer. Outside of school, I have three children who are 12, 9, and 6, and - as my wife puts it - an unhealthy obsession with soccer.
