I have been an educator for 29 years, serving 23 years as a High School or Elementary Principal, and now as Middle School Principal for Marlow Public Schools. I am married to my wonderful wife, Deanna, and together we have three children, Rachelle (Outlaw Class of 2005), Jordan (Outlaw Class of 2015), and Ryan, who will graduate this year.
