Starting out as a Junior High/High School Social Studies teacher, I have now spent over a decade immersed in education. Transitioning to Higher Education in 2012 I have experienced roles in Admissions, International Admissions, and most recently as the Director of Student Involvement at Westminster College (MO). A constant throughout the entirety of my career has been working alongside Athletics, and continue to do so as the Head Men's Basketball Coach at SPSCC. My wife, Marilyn, and our Shih Tzu-Terrier, Pearl, were very happy to make the journey to the Pacific Northwest and begin our new lives in Olympia.
