Snowboarding on Mt. Hood in July

The 2019-20 school year marks my seventh year of teaching and my forth year at KIS. Before coming to KIS, I taught 8th grade world geography at Thomas Hunter Middle School in Mathews, Virginia from 2012-2016.

Prior to teaching, I served four years of active duty service in the United States Coast Guard, sailed as a commercial mariner on tankers and container ships, and deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in 2011-2012 with my former Army Reserve unit. There is some other stuff in between too... I'm sure you will hear a story or two along as we move through the school year.

In addition to teaching 7th grade social studies, I also advise the KIS Model United Nations, Chess Club and Ski Club.
