I have been teaching Physical Science at Bumpus Middle School since 2010.  I was an Environmental Biologist for fourteen years prior to becoming a teacher. I love being in the classroom and working with students.

I am the Head Cross Country Coach, Assistant Indoor Track and Field Coach. I also am the Boys Golf Coach. Keeping students healthy is a lifestyle, not a choice.



I was raised in Hoover Alabama and believe it or not,  I am a product of the Hoover City Schools System! 

I am the proud father of two beautiful daughters who live in Hamilton, Montana.  I spend as much time as I can out west during the summer months and other breaks during the school year. They visit here during the Christmas holidays and during the summer!

I race the Ironman races and Ultramarathons (20, 40 and 60 mile XC races) to stay in shape and to keep up with my runners in Cross Country. 

However, what I enjoy more than coaching is teaching students Chemistry and Physics. I try to light the fire in all my students and engage them in all types of learning!
