Before joining Southwestern I worked as a 1st grade teacher at Rochester Prep Elementary School in Rochester and as a 2nd grade teacher at Abraham Lincoln Elementary School in Jamestown. Throughout my teaching career I have been dedicated to providing elementary students with a safe, positive, and nurturing environment where they feel valued and feel they have a place in our school community.
I have lived in the Southwestern community my entire life. My wife Abbie is a kindergarten teacher in Jamestown. We live in Lakewood with our 11-month old son Sam and our dog Gio. We enjoy reading, traveling, and attending sporting events.
