Born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. I attended Iona College in New York to play football on an athletic scholarship. After completing my degree in criminal justice, I attended Gonzaga University in Washington to pursue my Master's degree in administration. After completing my Master's degree I began coaching high school and college football. After moving to the bay area, I decided to follow my passion for teaching and attended Cal State East bay where I received my PE teaching credential. I am also a big fan of the Lakers, Dodgers, and Rams.
While in school PE was always my favorite subject. My teachers taught me that sportsmanship, accountability, and having fun were very important, and I continue that philosophy here at Encinal.
