Professional Experience/Bio: Teaching is my second career. Prior to earning my Master’s Degree from Arizona State, I had over thirty years of success in corporate America. In addition to owning my own business, my career involved management in both domestic and international corporations. I have fulfilled key positions as a Senior Director, Executive Vice President and General Manager. After leaving high school, I served with the United States Marine Corps and earned the rank of Sergeant. I am also the proud father of two grown children and have been married to my wife Diane for over 37 years. I have been fortunate to traveled extensively and have seen all fifty states. My international experiences include travel to Europe, Canada, Mexico and Asia. I am really pleased to be on the staff with the “Dream Catchers.” Teaching at Compadre is my dream job. In high school I was not a very successful student. Part of the reason was my attitude and personal lack of motivation. Compadre gives me the opportunity to share from my life experiences with students who also need some extra attention and loving care. Hopefully, they can learn from my mistakes.
