I have been teaching at High Tech Middle since 2013. I have taught humanities in 8th grade, 7th grade, and now 6th grade at HTM since 2017. Previously, I student taught in both a middle school and a high school in Jurupa Valley while pursuing my teaching credential at UC Riverside. I received a Masters in Fine Arts for Creative Writing from UC San Diego in 2012, and received my B.A. in Interdisciplinary Humanities from the University of San Diego in 2008. I love San Diego and am fiercely loyal to the Padres. In my free time I enjoy playing and watching sports, practicing photography, reading and writing, and walking my dogs. I love nothing more than spending time with my wife, Anabel, and two dogs, Petula and Roo.
