I was originally born in Bozeman, MT. When I was young, my family decided to move to California. There, I lived and went to school starting in southern California, and eventually moving up to San Francisco where I attended college. I grew up in a very active family. All my life I have been involved in sports, martial arts, and outdoor / action sport activities. Recently in April of 2012, my wife and I decided to leave Southern California so that we could pursue our dream of raising our two small children in a safer, smaller, and loving community. Luckily, my love for athletics has remained a big part of my life. I am one of the assistant football coach’s for varsity here at Diamond Ranch Academy.

Comments on DRA

I have been working with children off and on for the last 10 years. Never have I had the privilege to work with such an amazing group of individuals who wake up every day with the mindset of helping teenagers become better character individuals. I am blessed daily to work along side professionals at DRA who positively impact children lives through academics, spirituality, therapy, and athletics. For the first time in my professional career, I can say with certainty and honest that I believe in DRA, it’s employees, and its mission!
