What do you like about working at University High School?

I get to do the things that I love with students and colleagues that care about learning and each other. Every day. What could be better than that?

Personal Information

I live in Indianapolis with my wife, a music teacher at The Orchard School, my daughter, a student at The Orchard School, and a persnickety cat. I spend my time away from school reading a lot, writing a little, and being the best mediocre trumpet player in Marion County.
