About Me:

My spouse Nathalie and I have two children: Esmé (3 years old) and Parker (1 year old). I am originally based out of Vancouver and Vancouver Island, where as a teenager, I worked as a professional film/television actor for a number of years before moving to Alberta. At the University of Alberta, I completed a Bachelor of Arts in Drama and a (second undergraduate degree) Bachelor of Education specializing in Secondary Education. My passions outside of teaching include, but are not restricted to: hiking, hockey (go Oilers go), parenting, backpacking, bushcraft, ultra-marathon running, baseball, drama, theater, traveling and board game design.


As an educator, my goal for every classroom is to create a positive learning environment defined by clear expectations with each student feeling safe, respected and recognized. I strive to inspire, challenge, and enable the natural growth within all of my students to prepare them for life long learning. Furthermore, I aspire to ensure every student at Penhold Crossing Secondary School develops a plan for life after school, whether that be a Post-Secondary training, degree, or employment. 


If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to email or call.

I look forward to hearing from you!
