I'm a pre-middle-aged family-man from Lacombe, Alberta. That's in Canada. I think responsible risk-taking is one of the most important parts of effective teaching and professional growth. My strengths include audio and video production, promoting collaboration (students and staff), and having conversations about best practices. I'm passionate about growth mindset, workplace culture, and student engagement. Outside of education, I love my family, sports, punk music, and well-crafted coffee or beer (depending on the time of day).
