As a long-time resident and graduate of Southampton Township School District, I am running to be a member of the school board to give back to a school and a community that made a tremendous impact on me. After graduating from Lenape High School, I attended Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, PA. While in college, I pursued an English degree with the hopes of becoming a teacher and a coach. At that time, Southampton Township School District needed a wrestling coach. I drove back and forth from Philadelphia to help the school district maintain a wrestling program. That’s where my career as an educator really started. 
After graduating from Saint Joseph’s University, I taught at Cherry Hill High School West before returning to the area to teach at Seneca High School. I’ve been at Seneca since 2004, and during that time, I earned my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership and my Doctorate in Educational Leadership and Innovation. In addition to teaching, I coach baseball, wrestling, bowling, and football at Seneca. I was fortunate enough to lead the baseball team to a NJ State Championship and was named Coach of the Year by the Philadelphia Inquirer and the Courier Post. I transitioned from the role of a teacher to an Assistant Principal and Supervisor of Instruction where I supervise the Special Education, Business, and Technology departments. 
Outside of my role as an educator, I coach youth sports and volunteer as a teacher at a local church. I also enjoy to write (mostly about education) and have been published several times. 
I reside in Southampton with my wife, Amanda, and my four children, Phoebe, Brady, Beau, and Lucas.
