I graduated from AHS in 1999 and earned my Bachelor of Arts Degree in English from UCLA in 2003. After working in television as a Production Assistant for Fox Sports Net and a Special Effects Artist on the movie "King Kong," I decided that the best way to combine my love for writing, youth, and sports was to become a teacher/coach. This is my sixth year of teaching. I taught one year of English at Hillcrest Christian School in Thousand Oaks and I taught for one year at AE Wright Middle School in Calabasas. Also, I have been coaching basketball as an Assistant Coach or a Head Coach for eleven years. I am proud to currently serve as the JV Girls Basketball Head Coach here at AHS, my fifth year in the program! Outside of school, I am an avid Dodgers, Lakers, Raiders, and UCLA Bruins fan. I love golf, a good BBQ, and watching my favorite TV shows (The Office, House, Parks & Recreation, Community, South Park, Family Guy, Veep, The Newsroom, and Curb Your Enthusiasm). I look forward to meeting all of you and working with you to achieve your academic goals this year!
