I am honored to serve our students, families, staff and community as the principal of Waukee Northwest High School. I will be dedicated to building upon our successful inaugural year, and to continuing the longstanding Waukee Community School District tradition of excellence in academics, athletics, and fine arts.

I have served Waukee Community Schools for 10 years as a teacher and administrator. Most recently as the Associate Principal at Northwest High School, and prior to that as an Assistant Principal at Waukee High School for four years. Prior to my time with Waukee Community School District I was a teacher and head football coach in Atlantic, Iowa. I hold a bachelor’s degree from Drake University, and a master's degree from The University of South Dakota.

I reside in the Waukee District with my wife Natalie, also an educator in Waukee, and our three children. We feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to raise our kids in this community and school district.

I look forward to collaborating with our students, families, staff and community to prepare all students to be successful upon graduation.
