About


I grew up in Gainesville, Florida where I attended the University of Florida. My major at the UF was Fine Arts: Electronic Intermedia. While I always knew I wanted to work with the arts and computers, it wasn’t until returning to Eastside High School, my high school alma mater, as an employee that I discovered my desire to share my love of art and technology with students. There I worked as a computer lab operator and worked with students and faculty, providing assistance and instruction. Two years later, I moved to Southwest Florida and began my career as a teacher. I taught middle school reading, art, digital arts and television productions as well as high school digital design and web design. I currently teach visual arts at Island Coast High School and serve as the school's communications director.



I received a Master’s of Education in Curriculum and Instruction: Computer Education in January 2011 from the University of Phoenix. In August 2016 I started work on my Ed.D. in Curriculum and Instruction from Florida Gulf Coast University. While at FGCU, I received my first publishing credit in a peer reviewed journal for a program evaluation I co-authored with a classmate and my professors. I'm currently working on my dissertation and I'm anticipating graduating in 2023.

Throughout my fourteen years in the classroom, I have received several awards and recognitions. I was one of thirty-five Golden Apple finalists in 2008, 2012 and 2014 as well as a recipient of the Cape Coral Chamber of Commerce Teacher of the Year Award in 2007. In 2009 I was recognized as my county’s Middle School Technical and Career Educator of the Year. I’ve also been recognized as a Golden Apple Teach of Distinction. I’ve presented at the Futures in Educational Technology Conference (FETC) in 2010, 2011, and 2012, 2013 and 2015. I also had an article published in THE Journal (Technological Horizons in Education) in July 2013. I feel honored and humbled to be recognized for something I enjoy doing so much.



Over the last two decades I have worked on several freelance design projects. My work has ranged from logo design to album artwork and packaging design. Clients have included former NFL player Earnest Graham, educational trainer Bob Hoglund, The Lee County School District, Citrus Records, Florida Ska Events, and several bands. Some bands have included Rude City Riot, Amsterdam Faya Allstars, Magadog, The Apes, The Meteorites, and The Duppies. I have also worked on several personal design projects including SKAspot.com and SKAspot Radio.

During the last four years I have taken up drawing again after almost a two decade hiatus. I enjoy working primarily with charcoal and most of my subjects are dogs or skulls. I've had multiple pieces hung in the Arts for ACT gallery in the Fort Myers River District and have sold a few of my drawings. I've also been commissioned to draw pieces for several customers. Check out my projects section to view a digital portfolio of my design work and drawings.



Outside of my profession, I have several hobbies and passions. In my spare time I enjoy travelling, kayaking, and working on other various computer related projects. An avid fan of ska music, I’ve created or maintained several ska music related websites, operated ska internet radio channels, and have developed websites and logos for several musicians and music industry professionals including extensive work with Citrus Records. On April 16th, 2022, I married the love of my life, Taylor. Our cats Kevin and Darla keep us on our toes when we're not cooking a new recipe or going on an adventure.
