  Growing up in a family of educators instilled in me the significance of education as a basic building block in a young life, I believe Education can be a lifelong endeavor, as early on I witnessed the importance of a daily commitment to education. I found education is not only key to success, but also essential in shaping who we become.

I first came to Unalaska in 1987 as a private contractor and worked until 1994.  In September of 2005 I decided to return to Unalaska as a police officer.  The decision was easy for me and my wife Robin as we knew about the Unalaska City School District reputation.  I was excited for my three children to attend, which two have graduated.

I started working in Alaska in 1994, and moved to Unalaska in 1996.  As a native Texan, I had always wanted to live in Alaska, with its truly wide open spaces.  Unalaska quickly became home in my heart, even though the initial plan was for two years.  I came for the land, but stayed because of the people.
