Originally from Prince Edward Island, I have been a part of Chinooks Edge School Division since 2002, when I moved to Sundre from Fort McMurray with my wife (a Didsbury girl) and two young boys. My wife and I still live in the Sundre area, surrounded by Labrador Retrievers, three cats (only one of which I like), and the occasional semi-feral 20-year-old kid coming home to raid the freezer and do their laundry.  

I taught in Cremona for 14 years, a K-12 school where I was THE high school science department for 10 years, teaching every high school science course from Science 9 to Physics, Chemistry, and Biology 30. My last four years in Cremona were as Vice-Principal.  From there, I moved on to Innisfail High School for two years, where I was the Vice-Principal and Acting Principal, before moving on to the Principal’s position at Penhold Crossing Secondary School for the past four years. Throughout my career, I have taught academic sciences and Diploma courses and will continue to do so in my new role, teaching Physics 20 and 30 this school year.

When I am not at school, I spend my summers fishing, my falls hunting birds and big game, and my winters and springs cooking and eating everything I've caught -- at least the stuff that the feral 20-year-olds don't steal.


Teaching: Physics 20, Physics 30
