About Me

I am excited to be at O'Farrell for the 2018-2019 school year, and I'm looking forward to working with our 7th and 8th graders!
I grew up in Orange County and spent most of my younger years obsessed with sports and books. Baseball and basketball were favorites of mine, and I played both in high school. My reading obsession started with the Captain Underpants books in elementary school and progressed to the Harry Potter series soon after. I still read constantly, but my book choices have changed a bit since those days. My sports obsession has changed into a surfing obsession. If I'm not 
After graduating from high school, I moved to San Diego to attend UCSD for my Bachelor's Degree. At UCSD, I studied Literature and Education Studies. While studying, I worked in various positions within the field of education to test the waters of my future career.
I've worked at several schools all over San Diego, and I'm very excited to be returning to O'Farrell for another year. 
In the summer, I got married and took an amazing trip to Europe with my wife. But now it's time to get back to business... I look forward to meeting all of the 7th and 8th graders I will be working with, and I can't wait to see what they will accomplish over the course of our year together.
Go Falcons!
