I have been in education for 20 years, joining the Val Verde family in January 2017. I deeply believe in the necessity and importance of training one's mind, body, and soul. I love testing my own physical limits and am a huge MMA and Jiu Jitsu fan and practitioner.
I was born and raised in Placentia California. I attended Cal State University Fullerton obtaining a Bachelors Degree in Business Marketing. I enjoyed working in the business world, however I found the volunteer work I did with teens within the church to be much more fulfilling. I went back to school and obtained my teaching credential and then my Masters in Educational Administration from Cal State LA and clearing my credential at UCI. In 1996 I began teaching Middle School in the Los Angeles Unified School District where I also taught at the high school level.
I began my career in Administration in the Fall of 2005. I have had the opportunity to serve as an administrator at both the Middle and High school Levels.
I am blessed with a lovely wife, son, and daughter who spur me on to be the best man that I can be.
I am very fortunate to be able to support and encourage the students and staff at Citrus Hill HS so that they may be successful professionally and personally.
