Interests

I have lived in Michigan, California, Utah, Europe, and Hawaii. I moved to Hawaii in 2005 after honeymooning there with my wonderful wife. Most of my professional work experience and education took place in Hawaii where I enjoyed the ocean, climate, culture and food. I moved back to Utah in January of 2012 to be closer to family before the birth of our third child. My life revolves around family and service. Activities I enjoy include: anything outdoors, traveling, martial arts, playing the drums, learning about different cultures, watching documentary and comedy films, exercise, service projects, and spending time with family and friends.

Comments on DRA

I moved to St. George from Salt Lake City for the opportunity to work at Diamond Ranch Academy. I have always been impressed with DRA’s well thought out and designed comprehensive program. As a clinician I understand the impact an environment has on a person. DRA provides the environment and resources necessary to facilitate positive change in Adolescents. I feel fortunate to be a part of the DRA family and for the opportunity to help families heal and grow.
