About Me

This is my 12th year in education at the middle school level. Prior to this I was in the business world where I worked in the oil industry and also in marketing/logistics as a Buyer of Candy and other food items for grocery stores. I was the one who got the Skittles Sours into the stores. I have been married for over 15 years to Holly who works as a manager for Commercial Real Estate (In other words, she is the landlord for big buildings in Austin). I am originally from Detroit, Michigan but call Austin my home for over 12 years.

I enjoy teaching and enjoy the success of watching students achieve. I am competitive and believe in coaching a student to master the content. With confidence, determination and a strong work-ethic, anything is possible! I believe in simply "out-working the competition." Students will enjoy the class and will with more not only more knowledgeable in math but even more confident in themselves. You will find me accessible and willing to help at any time.

I come from a from a family of investors and stock brokers which heavily influenced my early education and passion for investing. I have done so since I was 21 and continue to read and become more knowledgeable about the economy to become a better investor and teacher. I believe everyone should learn a little bit about this craft and the economy around them. I will pass this on to those willing to learn in my Investment Club
