I began my teaching career in Columbus 27 years ago after graduating from Purdue University. I have been a Spartan for the last 17 years. My wife Denise works at Columbus Regional Health. Our son Nick attends Purdue University where he will be a junior and our daughter Kiersten will be a freshman at Butler University. I like to travel with my family, ride my bicycle throughout southern Indiana, and enjoy Pixar and Marvel movies.
