I was born in Dallas, TX and graduated Mesquite High School in 1997.  I attended Howard Payne University from 1997-2001 where I was a 4 year letterman in football, a 3 year letterman in track and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Composite Social Studies. I am starting my 16th year as an educator and a coach.  Previous schools that I have had the fortune of working at include Anahuac HS, Elgin HS, Little Elm HS, Florence HS, and Pflugerville Connally HS.
