    About Me

    This is my 17th year teaching, and my sixth year in GISD.  I am married to my beautiful wife of 22 years, Michele, and we have three children: Tristan, a new Texas Tech Red Raider; Logan, a junior at GHS; and Amerlyn, an 8th grader at Forbes.  We absolutely love the Georgetown community and look forward to many more years growing, learning, and serving here!
