I am thrilled to have this opportunity at Mesa High School.  I served Carson Junior High School in Mesa as principal for five years in the late 1990's.  After seven years of various administrative positions in Southern California, I returned to Arizona as principal of Bradshaw Mountain High School in Prescott Valley.  I am excited to return to the best school district in the west and proud to be a Jackrabbit.

I grew up on the west side of Phoenix in the Maryvale area before attending Glendale Community College and ASU.  I transferred to Southern California College to earn my degree and concluded my career as a baseball player. While in college, I met my wife of 31 years and together we raised a son and a daughter, both of whom attended Crismon Elementary School.  We feel blessed and privileged to have this opportunity to once again, call the valley our home.
