ABOUT ME:  I am an Arizona native and attended Dysart High School.  After graduating from high school, I went to Australia for several years.  Upon my return, I went to Glendale Community College and worked in the restaurant and retail industries.  My favorite job before teaching was working for Warner Bros. Studio Stores, where I had the pleasure of selling merchandise promoting some of my favorite cartoon characters such as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Taz, and Yosemite Sam.  After years of hard work and sacrifice, I finished my Bachelor's Degree in Education from Ottawa University and began teaching.  I am now in my 20th year as an educator and I really am excited to work at Independence High School.   I live with my wife, Jennifer.  We have 3 Rhodesian Ridgebacks and 2 Boxers that keep me pretty active!  Looking forward to a great school year!
