I believe that you first must believe in yourself before you can accomplish anything. It is the moral imperative of educators to help create and foster an environment that allows students to believe in themselves and to create opportunities for success.

I am the youngest from a family of 10 (4 brothers and 5 sisters), born and raised in Marion, Wisconsin. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin- Oshkosh with a major in English and Secondary Education I became an English teacher and coached football for seven years at Wittneberg-Birnamwood. I then became the Athletic and Activities Director / Assistant Principal at Waukesha South High School for three years. I accepted the Principal job here at West Allis Central in 2009.
I am proud to be part of the West Allis Central family that is both proud of its tradition and excited about its future. This is a large urban high school that has a small town feel. Central provides its very diverse student body with unique academic and extra-curricular opportunities. This is truly a school that believes in doing whatever it takes to ensure student success. The school’s staff is passionate about doing what’s best for students and prides itself in their ability to create meaningful opportunities for all students.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my wife Jena and two sons, LaDainian and Xzavier. My hobbies include reading, working out, and playing softball.
