I graduated from Albion College in 2006 and received my graduate degree from Western Michigan University in 2011.  Shortly after completing my masters degree I returned to Western to finish my teaching certification requirements.  In the fall of 2012 I started my first position teaching K-5, and 9-12 physical education. 

I am very excited to be teaching P.E. here at Sturgis Middle School.  Last school year I served as the P.E. teacher at Wenzel Elementary.  Prior to teaching in Sturgis I taught for 3 years in Battle Creek, MI and coached track and field.  Prior to that I was a coach at the University of Michigan and Albion College.  

I live here in Sturgis with my wife, Lesley, and our children Alice and Henry.  I love spending time with my family, being outside, traveling, and working on projects at my home here in Sturgis.
