I am a 2005 graduate of Hewitt-Trussville High School, a 2011 and 2012 graduate of the University of Alabama with a BA in History and a BS in Teaching and Learning in the Social Sciences, and a 2015 graduate of Samford University with a Masters of Education.  I am thrilled to be in my 5th year back home teaching at HTHS!  I teach 10th and 11th grade U.S. History.  I am the head 9th grade football coach, a varsity football offensive line assistant, and the head JV softball coach.  I am very excited and blessed to have the opportunity to impact students by teaching a subject that I love. 


In June 2017, I married my beautiful wife Maddie.  She is a 5th grade teacher at Paine Elementary in Trussville.  We live in Trussville with our dog Murphy.
