I have worked in education for over 15 years, in schools, at the state department of educations, Denver
Public Schools central office and in non-profits. I moved from California in 2009 to pursue a Masters
degree in education at the University of Colorado in Boulder. I have a B.A. in History from San Jose State
University and served as an intelligence analyst in the U.S. Marines in the 1990s. I have two young boys
and a lovely wife who also works in Denver Public Schools. We mountain bike, ski, hike, cook, play
music, read, and run through sprinklers, and live in Denver.
