I grew up in Memphis, Tennessee, and then came to Rexburg, Idaho to earn a BS in Elementary Education at BYU-Idaho. I later earned an MS in Educational Theory and Practice from Arkansas State. I taught in public schools for a bit and am now stoked to be helping prospective students learn about BYU-Idaho. I have 5 really cool kids and a great wife. Besides parenting, my hobbies are fixing stuff and being outdoors camping, climbing, hiking, and fishing.
