I am a product of Virginia Beach City Public Schools (@vbschools), graduating from Bayside High School (@BHSMarlins) in 1995. After serving 6 years in the U.S. Army (@USArmy) as an Airborne Ranger, I obtained a Bachelor's degree in Secondary Education-Mathematics from Columbus State University (@ColumbusState), a Master of Science degree in Educational Leadership and Administration and a Doctor of Education degree from The George Washington University (@gwGSEHD).

Before becoming the principal of Thomas Dale High School, I served as a math teacher at Green Run High School (@GRHS_Stallions), a Teacher Leader with the Center for Teacher Leadership (@PGIVBCPS), and an assistant principal at Sussex Central Elementary School and Floyd E.
