Joined ECS: 2016

Originally from Orange County, I relocated to Olympia, Washington, where I developed a theatre program for Community Christian Academy in Lacey and Cascade Christian High School in Puyallup. After graduating from St. Martin’s University in Lacey in May of 2016, I completed a double Masters in Theatre and Literature, as well as my Washington State Teaching Credential. My interests include watching movies and plays, travel (Mexico, France, England, Italy, Germany, New Orleans, New York, San Francisco), and spending time with my family, friends and dogs! I also enjoy hiking, swimming, motorcycle riding, shooting, and shopping! Teaching kids to sing, dance, act, and love the stage and theatre, as well as showing them how to build spiritual faith and character on and off the stage, takes me to my happy place! I consider it my life’s mission and testimony. Ever since I came to Jesus at their same age, He has grown my love for theatre and kids and Him together. Sticking with Godly messages for our shows and actors means everything to me, and my heart’s desire is that is does for the kids too! I feel I am beyond blessed to get to be a part of the ECS community, and I am looking forward to seeing how incredibly talented all of these amazing kiddos are at performing.

After a career in Software Development with Microsoft and other software companies, I’ve come to ECS to teach youth and help with Information Technology. I live in Issaquah with my wife. We have 1 daughter who went to ECS back in 2003. My wife also teaches Preschool at ECS, so we have a lot of history with the school. I desire to teach students not only computer skills, but how to love and serve the Lord in life.
