I am elated to serve as the Physics Instructor and Internship & Partnership Coordinator at Central Virginia Governor’s School for Science and Technology.

I began my teaching career in Lynchburg City Schools in 1999, teaching physics, chemistry, and mathematics at E.C. Glass High School.  I have also served in Lynchburg City School’s Summer Program as an Assistant Principal (2005), Principal (2006 – 2007), and SOL Content Coordinator (2008).   My work experience also includes serving as an ETS SAT Administrator and Site Supervisor for E.C. Glass and coaching many sports until joining Central Virginia Governor’s School faculty in 2010. 

I currently teach four junior physics classes at Central Virginia Governor’s School and serve as the Internship & Partnership Coordinator where I help place all of our juniors in internships during the spring semester.  I am also the Industrial Advisory Board Coordinator where I strive to maintain the strong partnerships with businesses and organizations throughout our region.  I am also the Senior Technology Seminar Coordinator and teach Senior Technology Seminar classes including: Engineering Bridge Project, Nuclear Science, 3D Design & Print, and Drone Technologies.  

My education background includes a B.S. from Longwood University in Physics with a minor in mathematics and teaching endorsement in physics and mathematics.  I then earned a M. Ed. in Educational Leadership from Lynchburg College in Administration and Supervision.  I earned my G.C. (graduate certification) from Lynchburg College in Earth and Space Science and completed 24 graduate credits in the areas of physics (University of Virginia), astronomy, and environmental science.  I also earned my Educational Doctorate (Ed. D) Leadership Studies from Lynchburg College.

Although I was born in Ohio, I have spent most of my life in central Virginia.  I graduated from Brookville High School and married my wife Michelle in 2002 and we have three children.  We enjoy traveling and a multitude of sports and activities that keep us very busy.
