Born in Salida, Colorado in 1973; I am proud to say I am a native to Colorado. I lived in Saint Louis for a little over a decade when i was a young boy and grew to be a huge Saint Louis sports fanatic. Saint Louis professional sports teams the Cardinals, Blues and Rams are the teams I follow as well as the teams here in Colorado. I am the eldest of 3 boys and a graduate of Wasson High School, class of 1993. I earned my higher education degrees from the University of Northern Colorado. In 200I earned my B.A degree in Kinesiology and in 2011 my M.A.T in Physical Education. I joined the Air Academy family for the 2005-06 school year and I have been here ever since. I coached football when I first started my career here however during the 2006-07 school year I changed coaching positions and began coaching ice hockey. As I am a coach for the hockey team here at Air Academy, I am also the head strength and conditioning coach and I sponsor the bowling club. I am very passionate in helping my students become the very best they can be and encourage them to chase and accomplish all their dreams and lead healthy happy lives.
