I'm currently in my 10th year of teaching, all at Platteview Central. I teach 8th Grade Pre Algebra and 8th Grade Algebra.  I've coached 8th Grade girls basketball for the past 10 years. This will be my second year coaching 7th grade boy basketball and I've coached the JV Baseball team since the program begin (3 years ago)! I also coach the Springfield SR Legion Baseball team.


I graduated from Papillion High School in 1977.  I enlisted in the Navy in 1982 and retired from the Navy in 2002.  My ground job in the Navy was Aviation Electronics, where I maintained F-14 Tomcat and C-9B Skytrain aircraft.  I was also a Naval Aircrewman, where I accumulated over 2,000 flight hours as a C-9B loadmaster. (Lots of Math!!!)

I enjoy all sports, particularly golf and baseball. I love Husker football and Bluejay basketball.

I live in Papillion with my wife Stephanie. I have two children, Nick, a Flight Instructor at Council Bluffs Airport  and Julie, a senior at UNL.
