This is my 10th year teaching at Westside, and 20th overall. I have taught all grades and all levels of English, and am currently teaching English 4 and Journalism 1. Before teaching, I spent 8 years as a sportswriter for various newspapers in North Carolina. I am a graduate of Western Carolina University and earned my teaching license through UNC-Greensboro. In 2019, I completed my Master of Education degree from Anderson University. When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time at home with my wife, Amanda, three daughters, Caroline (18), Katie (16), and Lindsay (14), and cats Bubba, Mittens, Herb, and Leo.
