Born and raised in northeast Pennsylvania, I enjoyed outdoor recreation, playing sports and working with others. So it only made sense that I go to college for Health/Physical Education. I taught Health /Physical Education, then Safety Ed/Driver Ed for several years before returning to school to earn a Master’s Degree in Education Leadership. I served as an Assistant High School Principal for four years before I was promoted to Elementary Principal.

My wife of 25+ years and four children had been visiting Sarasota County for years and liked it so much we decided to move here in 2012. For the past several years, I have been a substitute teacher in Sarasota and Manatee County schools and worked as a Construction Superintendent.

I am very excited to be part of Sarasota Military Academy and look forward to working with such high quality and caring faculty members. As well as, serving the cadets and families in the years to come.
