Introduction A bullet point summary of my life * Born in Winston-Salem, NC in the mid sixties (too young to be a hippie) * Was a geeky and loud youth - had some cool friends anyway. * Went to Duke University and was there to see the Coach K dynasty begin * Worked at P & G for five years as Computer Systems Analyst * Quit Corporate America to teach - go figure! Was a surprise to me too. * Spent some time getting my Masters at NWMSU (tiny town, awesome school) * Spent some time in Europe (one year teaching in Hungary) and Africa * Finally started teaching and coaching in St. Louis - difficult but rewarding * Arrived in California too poor to teach - went back to Tech for a while * Really missed teaching - landed at Hercules High. I love it here. * Got Married * Did an Ironman * Traveled all over including 6 months in Indonesia * 2011 - Back to Hungary and first go at the Camino * 2013 - Left Bay Area for Seattle, programmed games for CGS at UW * 2015 - Ballard High School - Go Beavers! * 2017 - Back to the Camino and legendary return to Oakland and Oakland Tech

You get to ride the big roller coaster three times in a row. What will keep your dad from taking a bite out of your candy apple?

It's so sweet. It's money baby!
