I was raised in Lompoc, graduating from Lompoc High.  I attended Allan Hancock College and received my B.A. in History from Cal Poly SLO.


I have been here at SMHS since 2009 and I have been working with SMHS students since 1998 in a variety of Alternative Education programs.  I worked for 8 years at Delta Continuation High School, 12 years in Independent Study and Adult Education.  Over the years I have had the privilege of helping hundreds of SMHS students achieve their goal of a high school diploma.  It's a pleasure to continue on that mission more directly now that I am here at SMHS.

I am also, currently the coach of the girls & boys golf teams at SMHS.


I love sports.  I play just about all sports but especially love golf and volleyball.  I’m a Los Angeles Dodgers fan and I will root for any team going up against the Dallas Cowboys.
During my early 20’s I spent 2 years living in Brazil.  Since then, I have continued with a passion for everything Brazilian, especially the people and the language.  Speaking fluent Portuguese, one of my favorite things is to keep in touch with my many amigos Brasileiros.
