I am a lifelong educator in Florida. I received my undergraduate degree in Political Science from Florida State University and my Master’s degree in Social Studies education from Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University. Beginning as a Social Studies teacher, I spent ten years teaching a subject that I love. I also had the opportunity for 11 years to be a Dean and Assistant Principal for Lincoln High School. I am very pleased to serve as Fairview’s Principal. The prospects that lie ahead of us are exciting. I look forward to working with the students, teachers, and parents to continue to build upon Fairview’s success. I believe that: all students should experience educational triumphs, Fairview will become an "A" school, all students should receive a well-rounded education that will serve them as they mature, and Fairview will provide a strong foundation for our students' continuing education. On a more personal note, I have a wonderful wife Cathrine. We have one son, Drew, and a dog, Harley. In my free time, I like to spend time with my family, travel, and play basketball.
