I enjoy sharing my expertise and helping others be the best that they can be as a friend, educator, or as an instructional designer; hoping to elevate others to fulfil their own destiny’s while sharing my life with my amazing wife ‘Michelle’.

Throughout my career as a teacher, I have had some amazing opportunities throughout my career and within my Professional Learning Network (PLN). I have attended some of the best learning experiences at worldwide conferences.

As I peer toward the future, I am open to any pathway open to me and one thing is for certain, I will never lack a passion for educating and inspiring others to be lifelong learners and work toward bettering themselves in their chosen path because situations do not define us. I take great pride in being an innovative educator in this ever-changing world in which we live.
