  • I have taught 1st, 2nd, 5th and 6th grades in McFarland, Cuernavaca (Mexico) and Riverside. I have been the principal of elementary, middle and high schools in Ontario, Azusa and San Diego, and I’ve worked at the university and district office levels in Orange County and San Diego.


    I earned a Bachelor’s Degree from Point Loma Nazarene University, a Master’s Degree from California State University, Fullerton and a Doctorate Degree from the University of Southern California in Educational Leadership. I enjoy the learning process and working toward continuous improvement and greater efficiency as we consistently strive for increased academic achievement for ALL students.


    My wife is a nurse practitioner, adjunct professor and nurse supervisor for UCSD Medical Center and I have three teenage boys who are avid surfers and they enjoy playing football and lacrosse.
