Dear parents and students, I became interested in art at a very young age and received my B.F.A. from the University of Akron in 1997. Two years later I received a B.A. in Art Education from Kent State University. In addition, I received my M.A. in integrating technology in the classroom from Walden University. I live in Tallmade with my wife Lizz and my 5-year-old son Sterling. Outside of the classroom, I enjoy running, cycling, camping, creating art and spending time with my family.
