I am a lifelong Michigander.  I attended St. Stephen Lutheran Elementary School in Waterford, Sashabaw Middle School, Clarkston High School ('97), and Hillsdale College ('01).

I began teaching at CHS in 2002.  Within two years, I was coaching the Varsity Boys Tennis team and running the Youth in Government Club, which I still do.

I live in Auburn Hills with my beautiful wife and our two children.  We are members of Providence Orthodox Presbyterian Church in Southfield.  I love travel, classic literature, most kinds of music, college football, hiking, and writing.  Perhaps the most unique thing about me is that I have seen baseball games at 37 MLB stadiums, including every current one, except Miami's new one.
