This will be my eight year teaching high school and my sixth year at TAG.  I come to TAG from Richardson ISD where I taught in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Academy.   Prior to my current career as a teacher, I’ve worked as a product launch team director, technical product manager, field support engineer, sales engineer, program manager, R&D specialist, instrumentation engineer, information warfare engineer, photographer, and graduate student.  I am also a member of the University of North Texas at Dallas and the Richland College adjunct faculty.

 

My wife Janet and I have been married for about 28 years and have two children.  My daughter is currently a graduate student at Harvard working on a Masters in Education degree.  She is a National Merit Scholar and is her high school class valedictorian.  My son graduated from Vanderbilt University where he majored in computer science and history.  He took and passed thirteen AP examinations and graduated from JJ Pearce High School with a class rank of fourth.  He is currently working in the DFW area as a software engineer for a small startup firm.  Janet is a lawyer focusing on estate planning at The Graham Law Firm, P.C.
