The first thing about me is that my girls are my world. My wife and I have been married for 7 years. We have been blessed with two beautiful girls.

I have been a teacher for six years, at two schools, in four different grades. All of my education experience has been in an urban setting, where I feel called to serve.

Prior to teaching, I received my bachelor’s degree in journalism from Kent State University. After working in the the New York media for two years after college, God called me into teaching. The month before we got married we both quit our jobs in New York and moved back home to Ohio, where I received a Master’s in Education.

I currently teach 6th grade. Writing has been a summer passion that, with God’s help, could become much more.
