I am thrilled to be a Bulldog! I am coming to Gainesville after being the PK-12th Grade Principal for the Union Star R-II School District. Before becoming an administrator, I worked in the Special Education Department of North Kansas City School District and Branson Public Schools. I earned my Bachelors Degree from College of the Ozarks, my Masters Degree from Lindenwood, and my Specialist Degree from Northwest Missouri State University. At home, I live with my wife Nicole, our two sons, our dog, and our cat. We enjoy watching movies, playing outdoor sports, and spending time with friends and family.
My "why" is to be a Champion for every single person who walks through our doors.
