I was born in Fort Worth, TX, originally and then we moved to Weatherford, TX in 2001. I graduated from Weatherford High School in 2006. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Science from Texas A&M in College Station. Whoop! I spent a few years as a personal trainer for a wide variety of people, including student athletes. That is where my passion of working with children and young adults started. I then moved to Plano, TX, to pursue a management career. I ran multiple LA Fitness clubs as an Operations Manager. Being able to hire young adults and help mold them just pushed my interest for teaching further. After a few years in that profession, I decided to pursue teaching as a career. In the spring of 2018, I completed my student teaching at Willow Springs Middle School by working with the 7th grade science department. I have been with Lovejoy ever since!
I met my wife at Texas A&M when she moved in next door. After dating for 8 years, we finally tied the knot in November of 2017. She received her Bachelor's Degree in Science and then her Doctorate in Dentistry from Texas A&M in Dallas. She is now practicing at Stelly and Johnson Family Dentistry. I have a 2 amazing children. My son, Rowan, will be turning 3 this year and my daughter, Lyla, will be turning 1 in November. We also have 2 boxers, Samson and Ripley. In my free time, I am mostly at a gym or on the water wakesurfing. I pretty much enjoy anything outdoors. As my students can account for by the decorations in my room, I am a big Incredible Hulk fan.
My goal is for my students to realize the potential they have and enjoy the years they spend here. It goes by quickly and I want them to get everything they can out of it. I will try my hardest to help make every student as successful as they want to be. We all remember those teachers, by name, who really had a positive impact on us growing up. My goal is to be one of those teachers.
