I was born and raised right here in North Texas. I lived just a little south of here in Hurst and attended L.D. Bell high school. I played tight end and linebacker while at Bell. I also competed in track, throwing the shot and disc.After high school I had the opportunity to further my education and football playing career at McMurry University. While at McMurry I majored in Multidisciplinary Studies II (that is fancy talk for an education major with two teaching fields). My two teaching fields were history and biology. I played tight end all four years and threw the shot and disc for one year. I graduated from McMurry in December of 2000.Since I finished my education, I have worked at a many schools across North Texas. My first job was at Southlake Carroll teaching seventh grade Texas History. After Southlake I moved north to Sherman where I coached football and baseball for two years. Then it was on to Glen Rose for half of the school year. I was only there for one semester because I had the once in a lifetime chance to coach football in Paris, France. Yes, they do play football in France. I was the offensive coordinator for the La Courenuve Flash.Once back in the states I accepted a job at Ennis High School where I coached defensive ends and track. I was fortunate to be apart of the 2004 4A state championship team. After Ennis I moved back to the metroplex got married and took my current job here at Grapevine High School. This is my 16th year teaching. I have been at GHS for 12 years, the first 8 of those I coached almost all sports from football, golf, boys soccer, track and middle school basketball, I am now thoroughly enjoying teaching Pre-AP Chem and Chem. I spend my free time with my family - my wife Melissa, son Kale & daughter Calla.I hope you find the site helpful and please enjoy your visit.
