Howdy and thanks for checking in on my webpage! I love the vocation I chose so many years ago, teaching, and I am thrilled to join the staff at Marble Falls High School. While this is my first year at Marble Falls High School, it is my 13th year teaching.

I love fly-fishing the Pedernales and the freestone mountain streams of Colorado and Wyoming, as well as backpacking and camping. But you'll most often find me cutting firewood or reading and re-reading books I find compelling ... by the fire.
