What do you like about working at University High School?

What I love most about University High School is how the students, faculty, and staff all care so deeply about the school, the community, and each other. It’s really quite remarkable and makes for an amazing atmosphere to work in and be a part of.

Personal Information

My wife, Sabrina, and I are the proud parents of Beckett (age 3) and Emerson (age 6 months). In my free time, I enjoy building forts, chasing (and being chased by) invisible dinosaurs, and flying imaginary airplanes.
