PERSONAL INFORMATION:

I was born and raised here in Vancouver, Washington (right down the street actually). Since leaving Vancouver after High School, my life has taken me from Rexburg, Idaho, Provo, UT, Spokane, WA to South America. My passion is working with youth, and I am ecstatic to be here at Skyview High School. When not counseling at school, I’m working actively with my church, the Boy Scouts, and through coaching various sports. I coach boys and girls tennis and bowling here at Skyview. I also love playing sports, especially tennis, basketball, golf, and volleyball. I’m also an avid runner, hiker, biker, and climber. I love reading, traveling, watching movies (even chick flicks), listening to music, karaoke, playing video games, and hanging with my amazing wife Stephanie who is an elementary school teacher. I also am the proud papa of two amazing miracle twins born March 19, 2011. They are my pride and joy and their names are Jesse and Hailey. I love being a counselor and am happy to help you however I can. Go Storm!
