Life Now

When I'm not working with students or teachers in the Clairemont High School, I am usually doing something with my family.  My wife, Cory and I spend as much time with with one another and with our two children who attend Oregon State University, Kaya and Curren. We can often be found camping, hiking, at the beach, or traveling (Photos on Instagram).

Outside of spending time with my family, I enjoy playing most sports. The two I have focused on most of my life have been soccer and surfing. I started playing soccer when I was five years old. I played in high school and community college. After three knee surgeries I decided to end my competitive career. I have been surfing since I was 15, yet it wasn't until I was 22 that it took the place of soccer as my main sport and lifestyle. 

Whenever possible I try to enjoy the outdoors and travel. Most of my travels focus around learning something new and usually have some historical significance.
