I am fortunate to be a native of this great state of Colorado! I was born and raised in Denver, but I have lived in Fort Collins for 37 years. My wife, Sandy, and I raised our four sons here. Our two oldest sons, Ezra and Jared, both live in Denver and our youngest son, Jackson, a recent graduate of CSU, lives here and is working in graphic design. Our other son, Christopher, sadly died from an undiagnosed medical condition in 2014. We have two grandsons, too! My former professional career was in education. I taught 6th grade for 21 years and was principal for 12 more years, all at Beattie Elementary here in Fort Collins. I have been richly blessed by countless relationships developed over those 33 years with students, parents, and colleagues. We enjoy the outdoors, and Sandy and I have climbed 13 Fourteeners the last three years as a tribute to Christopher. We also like traveling, bicycling, photography,and golf (well, I do!). In addition, I enjoy writing, and I am pleased that a novel I wrote, BRAD BATEMAN; BRAT RATMAN, has been published (and is available on Amazon!!)
