  • Greetings!

    I am honored to join Upper Merion Area High School as the new assistant principal. My educational journey began after graduating from Ursinus College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in history. After completing my undergraduate studies, I went on to earn a Master of Arts in Education from La Salle University, and then later received my principal certification through Arcadia University. Currently, I am a doctoral student in the educational leadership program at Temple University.

    Following a few years of service in social work, I spent nine years as a special education teacher in the Philadelphia, Perkiomen Valley, and Bensalem Township school districts. Prior to joining Upper Merion, I served as an assistant principal in the School District of Haverford Township for four years.

    I currently reside in Cheltenham, PA with my wife, Caitlin, and two sons, Kellan and Kendrick. Often described as a Philadelphia Eagles fanatic, I spend most of my time outside of school attending or watching Eagles, Phillies, Sixers, and Temple Owls (both football and basketball) games with family and friends. As a chess enthusiast, I accept any challenge from UMAHS students.
