I would like to welcome everyone to Santa Rosa Technology Magnet School (SRTMS).  Taking over as principal is a dream come true for me, and I would not want to be anywhere else on earth.  I look forward to another productive year with my SRTMS team and to working with all the students once again. For those who don't know, here is a little about me:

I graduated as valedictorian at California Lutheran University, with a B.A. in Liberal Studies.  I obtained my Master's degree in Educational Leadership from California State University - Channel Islands.  I spent sixteen years teaching various grade levels.  Most of my years of teaching took place at SRTMS.  I taught from second to eighth grade over the years.  I use my expertise from the classroom each day as I work with students and teachers in my position as principal.  I spent two years as Dean at SRTMS, two years as Principal of La Mariposa School, and three years as Principal of SRTMS.  During this time, I gained valuable experience in all aspects of administration, and feel that I can confidently continue to lead SRTMS. I’m excited to come to work every day at SRTMS and to continue the tradition of excellence was established at the school long before I started teaching here.

I, along with my wife, Kristine, have two wonderful children, Bridget and Tristan.  Bridget is eleven, and she is a student at SRTMS.  Tristan is five, and he keeps me busy all day.  I grew up in Camarillo, and have spent all but two of my twenty-two years in education working in the Pleasant Valley School District.  Kristine works at Dreamworks Animation, and she loves it there.  My passion is running, and I compete in a number of local races throughout the year.  

Let's have a wonderful year together!
