Today's Choice for Tomorrow's Future


Welcome to the 2022/2023 school year.  I am an educator at my core and I am committed to the service of others. I have always had a desire to lead and serve.  As a life-long educator and leader, I have held many positions in my career at every level including elementary, middle and high school. I have experience as an Elementary Principal, a High school Teacher and Coach, Athletic Director, Administrative Dean and an Assistant Principal at the Elementary, Middle and High school levels. I am thrilled to be the Principal at Cypress Ridge. It is my goal to continue the great work that is already happening at our school. I am happily married to my wife Missy who is also an educator and serves our District as Principal at Gray Middle School. We have two amazing children both attend or attended Lake County Schools. Hope our daughter graduated from East Ridge High School and our son Jacob will be a senior this coming school year. I am a huge St. Louis Cardinals and Notre Dame fan. I'm looking forward to a great year. If I can ever be of assistance in anyway, please do not hesitate to contact me.
