I am currently in my 8th year as superintendent of JGISD. I graduated from Viroqua High School in Viroqua, Wisconsin in 1989. I graduated in 1994 from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater with a major in Education and a minor in Coaching. In 2008, I graduated from Abilene Christian University with a Master's in Educational Leadership and in 2016 a recieved my Doctorate of Educational Leadership from Lamar University. I previously taught and coached for 13 years at multiple schools. My first principalship was at Hamlin High School in 2008, then four years at Snyder High School, as assistant principal and principal, and now Jayton. I am married to Ashley. Our children are Charlie (12), Ellie (10) and Alberic (9), who we just recently adopted from Burundi, Africa.

It's great to be a Jaybird!
