For 20 years, I have had the privilege of helping young people maximize strengths, overcome struggles and reach their true potential. It is my belief that with high expectations, a supportive environment and rich instruction, each individual can be successful.
After beginning my career in education as a Teaching Fellow at the Dunn School in California, I have worked at three independent schools and one charter school as an English and Social Studies Instructor. I have also had the opportunity to mentor students and lead staff as the Assistant Principal at Oak Creek Ranch School.
For the past 9 years, I have helped hundreds of young ladies reconnect with their true selves as an Instructor and Assistant Principal here at Sedona Sky Academy.
Prior to my career as an educator, I graduated from U.C. Berkeley with a degree in Political Science, I worked (I use that term lightly) at Park City Ski Resort and I furthered my education with a Maters in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University. But my greatest accomplishment was marrying my wife, Debbie, 12 years ago. When not at work, I love to spend time with my three boys Max, Ben and Luke enjoying life on the trails and playing fields of Sedona.
It is an honor and great opportunity to be entrusted with helping these young ladies, and I try to challenge each individual with a rigorous curriculum, humorous approach and a compassionate soul. As the poet William Butler Yeats stated, "Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." I can't think of a better life choice than to inspire the embers of these amazing minds.
