This is the start of my 12th year as a teacher and 10th year teaching math at Vista Del Lago. I have also been the Head Wrestling Coach here at Vista for 10 seasons. I grew up in Cypress, CA where I participated in Football and Wrestling during High School. I found success as a wrestler and eventually earned a scholarship to compete for UC Davis at the Division I level. After earning my bachelor's degree in Economics at UC Davis I entered grad school there and earned my teaching credential in mathematics and Masters Degree in Education. I also worked as an Assistant coach for the UC Davis wrestling team during that time. I love to compete and challenge myself. I still compete in wrestling and submission grappling. I have won a World Championship in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at the blue belt level and am a 4-time Wrestling National Champion. When I am not training, coaching, teaching, or competing I like to rock climb, hike, & go rafting. My beautiful daughter Sophie Rae turned 1 year old this summer.
