I moved to Denair the summer before my freshman year after my dad sold his computer business in Los Angeles and bought a small twenty-acre vineyard.  I loved life on the farm and loved living in Denair!  Prior to moving to the San Joaquin Valley I lived in southern California (Torrance, Redondo Beach, Canoga Park) and Dallas, Texas.  This converted city boy loved the country life and all the fun things to do here. The Central Valley is a great place to live and I have had many adventures in my years here.

I became the JV baseball head coach here in 1986.  I enjoyed working with kids so much that I changed careers from my job as the Marketing Coordinator at Gould Medical Foundation in Modesto and went back to school to earn my teaching credential.  1989 turned out to be a banner year for me as I was offered a teaching job here in early October and got married on October 14th.  My wife and I have two sons. My oldest, Ryan, attends UC Santa Barbara and my youngest, Brett, is employed by the Atlanta Braves.

My hobbies are watching my sons play baseball, traveling, softball, hunting, fishing, photography, and weight lifting.  I also love to cook.  Music is a passion and southern rock is my favorite genre.  The Marshall Tucker Band has provided the soundtrack to my life and they are my all-time favorite band.  Baseball was - and is - my first love.  Fortunately, my wife is OK with that!

Should you have questions the best way to contact me is via email; I can usually respond to you by the end of the day, if not sooner.
