I am pleased to be entering my 32nd year as an educator in the Archdiocese of Seattle. I was raised in Seattle, graduated from St. Anne's Catholic School, got my B.A. at Seattle University and M.Ed. at Western Washington University. My wife, Mary, and I live on Queen Anne in Seattle and enjoy hiking and travel. I am blessed to be a part of the community that is St. Madeleine Sophie and look forward to a wonderful school year.
