MA - Teacher Education, Claremont Graduate University

BA - English, University of Southern California


I am originally from South Pasadena, California, where I was born and raised. After graduating from South Pasadena High School (go Tigers!), I attended the University of Southern California (go Trojans!), majoring in English. Before pursuing my teaching career in earnest, I worked in film, education, and business.

In 2009, I earned a Masters degree in Teacher Education. I taught as an elementary teacher and as a substitute in California before traveling to Colombia to teach English as a volunteer to students from fourth to eleventh grade. It was such a great experience that I stayed another year-and-a-half, teaching seventh and tenth grades, as well as adults. It is there that I met my wonderful wife, Natalia. I'm glad to be back at New Bridge Middle School for my third year, teaching my favorite subject.

Aside from teaching, I enjoy traveling, reading, doing crossword puzzles, going to the beach, and playing and watching sports.
