ABOUT ME

Putting My Experience
to Work

I'm a father to two young boys, with my oldest in AASD 4K this year. I began my career as a middle school math teacher, where I met my wife, Brianne, who taught art to the same students down the hall. I have dedicated my professional life to education and served as a teacher, teacher coach, education nonprofit leader in a rural community, and district administrator in a large urban district. I currently support middle and high schools across the country, using technology to reimagine and operationalize their school schedules so kids get the support they need each day.

I believe all students, from all backgrounds, deserve an excellent education and that by listening to our families and those working in our schools each day, we can continue building excellent schools for all students in our community. 

I am excited to continue my work on the Appleton Area School Board to leverage my experience as a parent, educator, and active member of the Appleton community to continually push our schools to be the best they can be for every student, every day.
