About Me:

Like most young adults I graduated High School with no clear plan and bounced around several subjects in college before focusing in on Business and Finance.  During the summers I would also take night courses at a Real Estate School and ran a successful lawn care service during the day. 

            
After graduating from Sam Houston and obtaining my Realtors License I had the opportunity to intern at University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston.  I quickly realized I didn't like being restrained to a cubicle I ventured into the Real Estate market.

 

After 14 years of being a Realtor and a Mortgage Loan Officer it was time for another change.  I went back to school to obtain my teachers certification and joined Montgomery ISD in 2009.  In my years with the High School I have taught several subjects including Biology, Chemistry, IPC, Algebra and almost every Business course we offer.

 

My wife is also a teacher and our two children attend MISD schools.  My hobbies include motorcycles, boating on Lake Conroe, car audio, working on cars/trucks and being outside.

 

I look forward to a great third year together at Lake Creek High School.
