About Me

Hello Bearcats! This school year I will be entering my 2nd year as Assistant Principal at Bonita High. Before come to Bonita, I worked at Lone Hill Middle School as a science teacher and the WEB Advisor. Before my career in education, I worked as an Emergency Medical Technician for Care Ambulance in the city of Seal Beach for six years. I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology through Cal State University, Fullerton, as well as my teaching and administrative credentials through National University. I also obtained a Master’s degree in Education from National University. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my beautiful wife and two children, going to the gym, playing sports, and coaching my son’s little league team. I am a big time Lakers, Dodgers and Rams fan as well.

My personal leadership values are centered around service, integrity, communication, emotional intelligence and empathy. I believe that every student is valuable and unique, and with guidance from teachers, staff and parents, has the potential to do amazing things. I look forward to seeing all the incredible things our students accomplish this year! AWW YEAH BEARCATS!!!
