This is my 5th year teaching AP US History, AP Government, and US Government at Desert Vista and my 10th year overall. I enjoy increasing student's knowledge about our history, system of government and challenging students to think critically. It's my strong desire that students leave my classroom more informed about the world around them and ready to embrace a life of active citizenship.
I am the oldest of four brothers and spent 12 years in the Amazon jungle in Colombia, South America. My wife Andrea is a family practice doctor and we have 3 boys: Cade (5 years old), Asher (2 years old), and Kai (born this past April).
I enjoy solving Rubik's cubes, chess, playing "the beautiful game" (soccer), and cheering for Manchester United.
