I was raised on the Palouse where I was graduated from Moscow High School. I earned a BA in Social Studies at the University of Idaho, where I was certified in Social Studies, Humanities and History. I have a number of abroad experiences including studying history in a midieval town in Italy along with multiple travel experiences around the globe. I have a lovely Wife named Sarah along with three beautiful babies, Stella, Francesco and Annabella. When I am not teaching I like to spend my time hiking, camping, fishing, hunting, reading, traveling, and coaching.
