I am so stoked to be a part of the High Tech family. I am a father to three High Tech students as well as the girls varsity soccer coach. I feel honored to have the opportunity to help our students become confident life long learners as an academic coach. I am a San Diego native with a passion for life. I love movies, music, theater and surfing. I had a wonderful 15 year career as a professional chef and I now bring my passion for hospitality to serving our community. I am a man who has worn many hats in my life but none have been as rewarding as working with our youth. I like to bring my life experience into the classroom and provide practical applications to education. I have found that Project Based Learning is the perfect environment for learning outside the box, where I can provide a safe space for students to explore new ideas, collaborate with peers and to create deeper learning experiences.
