I was born February 22nd 1968 in Hookstown, Pennsylvania. It is a very small town about 25 miles from Pittsburgh. So, of course, my favorite sports team is the Pittsburgh Steelers. I am married to Lisa who is the Chief Nurse Anesthetist at Gaston Anesthesia Associates. I have been in the Clover School District 21 years. This is my 14th year at Bethel. I worked as an accountant in the inventory department of 84 Lumber before I became a teacher. I have a Bachelors Degree in accounting from Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh, and a Masters in Education from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh. I have three children, a dog and a cat. My son Grant is a sophmore in college. My son Drake is a sophmore, and my daughter Riley is a freshman at Clover High School. I enjoy trail running, and running obstacle course events with my friends and family.
