A Little about Me
I have always been enamored with the environment at Subiaco, and I was able to come here to fulfill the goal of teaching on the high school level. I had spent a lot of time at Subiaco with the Marriage Encounter ministry and am a product of Catholic school education in Arkansas; I was quite familiar with the area and knew the quality of education at Subiaco. I am the great grandson of German immigrants to St. Joseph’s Parish in Conway.
I grew up in Sherwood the youngest of four (one brother, two sisters). I married my wonderful wife Elaine at the ripe old age of 38. I was talked out of majoring in education in college, but I later went through the non-traditional licensure program with the Arkansas Department of Education. Before coming to Subiaco, I taught social studies, religion, vocabulary, and literature at St. Edward’s Catholic School and coached track at Little Rock Catholic High.
My favorite authors are Mark Twain, John Steinbeck and John Grisham. My favorite music group is the Doobie Brothers. I am the proud owner of four cats. I enjoy travel, jigsaw puzzles, working out, trivia and word games, and history. In fact, an ancestor on my Mom’s side was at the British surrender at Yorktown during the American Revolution.
I have traveled to 48 out of the 50 states (I haven’t been to Hawai’i or North Dakota). I qualified for and ran the Boston Marathon in 1983. I lived in Colorado for 3.5 years before returning to Arkansas.
