Biography

Welcome to Upton Middle School! I am excited to be a part of such a great staff. Upton is a place where students will enjoy a great education and many opportunities both in and outside of the classroom.

I'm a fifth-generation resident of St. Joseph, Michigan. I am also a 1991 graduate of St. Joseph High School and a 1987 graduate of Upton Junior High. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education, and a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership, both from Western Michigan University. Prior to becoming principal, I enjoyed teaching 6th - 8th grade science, social studies, health, and math at Upton.

Family is a very important part of my life, as my wife Kristy and I are raising twin boys, Zach and Sam, and two daughters, Ally and Ava. We enjoy family gatherings, going on walks, family vacations, and reading.

Please contact me if you ever have any questions, suggestions, or concerns.
