    Greetings! Welcome to my site. If you're here, then you probably want to know a little about me, so here's a brief bio.
     
    I was born and raised in Graham, Texas, and graduated from Graham HS in 1994.  From there, I went to Austin College in Sherman, TX, for two years, but then transferred to Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, TX, and graduated from there in 2001 with my B.A. in English Literature and a double minor in History and Theatre Arts. 
     
    I came to Allen High School in the spring of 2005 and have loved being a part of this wonderful high school environment since the moment I stepped on campus.
     
    I enjoy reading, playing with my son and daughter, playing golf when I get the chance, catching up with my DVR, watching movies, and spending quality time with my wife and family.  Becoming a father has been the best thing I have ever done in my life and I love watching my son and daughter grow, explore and develop into the people that they are becoming. Also, I love to cook, as it's a very cathartic experience for me after I leave my classroom.
