My family is the most important thing to me, and I am proud to come from a large and strongly connected extended family.  My wife and I are extremely blessed to have four wonderful children, all of whom have graduated from State College High School, competed in NCAA Div I and Div II athletics, and are now college graduates. 
    I am a 1984 graduate of State College Area HS and a 1989 graduate of Penn State.  After 23 years of teaching both English and Driver's Education here at State High, I moved into an administrative role as the Dean of Students in the fall of 2013.  The summer of 2015, I was promoted to Assistant Principal. In 2017, I was named the Director of Athletics for SCASD. 
    I hope to help create a family atmosphere at the high school where all families feel connected to their child’s educational and athletic experiences and all that the best high school in the state can offer.
