I began teaching at BK in the fall of 2012. I have been a credentialed teacher since 2009. I am certified to teach Speech Communication, Video Broadcasting, Italian, and Driver’s Education. I had the fortune of competing on BSU’s Speech and Debate team winning 1st at Nationals in Informative Speaking and 2nd in After Dinner Speaking.

My life revolves around my two little girls and wife. I look forward to taking them on camping trips, skiing, playing soccer (hopefully, or whatever sport/activity they may choose). My wife and I both lived in Italy before knowing each other and getting married. I’d describe myself as an Italophile and try to only speak to my girls in Italian. My last personal interest I’ll share is I love video and photography.

I feel blessed to get to teach the way I was taught to teach at BK. I’ve taught at some public schools before here, and i found myself making compromises regarding rigor and performance. Here students have risen to my expectations, parents have supported me, and I work with a great and masterful faculty that I learn from daily.


As a coach, I think that we should always maintain highest ethical standards to teach the students the character they don’t get from academics. That is why I like this quote from the famous orator Cicero, “Glory follows virtue as if it were its shadow.” This is my coaching philosophy… That and, Have Fun!
