What do you like about working at University High School?

It is amazing to work at a place where there is so much positive energy and good will. UHS is an intellectually rigorous environment where students and teachers can both feel comfortable to explore deep concepts and discuss our opinions. The hard work of students motivates me to create interesting lessons. Everyone here is so nice!

Personal Information

I live in Fishers with my two sons, Alonzo and Victor, and my wife, Liza. We have traveled extensively in China, and I have worked for many summers at an education program in Hong Kong. I like to run and hope to get involved with the track and cross country teams here at UHS.
