Welcome Warrior Families!


A little information about me. I grew up in Redmond, Washington, played basketball at Bellevue Community College which led me to moving to Alaska in 1989. While playing basketball and going to school I met my future wife, Pearl. We both graduated from the University of Alaska-Fairbanks. We began our teaching career in rural Alaska above the Arctic Circle in the village where my wife was raised, Noorvik.

I became an administrator in 2002 at West Anchorage High School. Over the next 14 years I worked at West, Dimond, and South Anchorage High Schools as an Assistant Principal. My adventures then took me to Unalakleet, Alaska, and on to Nome, Alaska, where I was an Elementary Principal and then retired from education.

Over the past five years I have worked at the Alaska Job Corps Center and the Council of Athabascan Tribal Governments. Our family relocated to Washington this past August and I worked at Aberdeen High School as an Assistant Principal last year.

I have a passion for working with young adults as they find their path in the world. The world is an amazing place and every person has the opportunity to make their world whatever they choose. There are no limits to what you can achieve if you are willing to work hard and sacrifice.

I am active and love all sports. I am looking forward to being a Warrior and supporting all of our students as they pursue their passion for the future.

We are proud. We are strong. We are WARRIORS!
