 Background: I was born & raised in Downingtown, PA, and attended Downingtown East High School from 2001-2004. I grew up playing soccer, baseball and wrestling for LYA, and became a ground crew member for the park in high school. I've also worked on parks department for several years for Uwchlan township. I attended West Chester University for music education, with a focus on trumpet performance; I also participated in the marching band and pep band for all four years. I married my college sweetheart in 2010 (she is also an elementary music teacher at Springton Manor), and we currently live with our two dogs, Nacho and Sheldon, in Norristown, PA. I am a huge Flyers fan and hockey lover in general, and I enjoy going to the games as many times as possible. I like singing silly songs and making lots of noise in general, and I'm very grateful for the opportunity to be a part of Lionville Elementary School.
