I graduated from the Coeur d'Alene High school in 1981 and received both my Bachelors and Masters from the Universtity of Idaho. I have been a teacher for 28 years. 2013-14 will be my 19th year at LCHS. My primary intrument is trombone and I studied voice as a part of my education. It has been an honor to teach at Lake City for these past 19 years and I look forward to many more to come. I have been married to my wife Victoria, for 30 years who is a fine FCS teacher at LCHS and I have four children of my own.
I love spending time with my family, like to work with wood and gardening, enjoy the great outdoors and of course...I believe in world peas.
