I am so excited to be at the Harbor Learning Center teaching Social Studies, and as an advisor for Grays Harbor Academy. 

This has been a dream of mine to become a history teacher since I was in middle school. If I am not learning or teaching history, you can find me building and painting models or playing board games. Traveling and seeing every aspect of this world is an ongoing passion of mine. Fifty countries is roughly my count now, and I can't wait to add to my experiences.  

-Grew up and went to school in Elma. 

-Twelve years in the United States Marine Corps as an Infantry Platoon Sergeant (0369) (Staff Sergeant).

-Counselor and Educator at Green Hill School.
