    Hello and welcome to my page!  This is my first year as a Principal, fourth year as an administrator, and my fourth year at Hugh K. Cassell.  I have been in education for 16 years, with stops in Prince William County, Albemarle County, and Augusta County.  I have worked in elementary, middle, and high schools.  I have been married to my wonderful wife, Sara, for 11 years.  We have three energetic children, Matti who is eight and is in Second Grade here at HKC, Landon who is six and in First Grade here at HKC, and Avery who is 18 months old.  I am originally from Farmington, NY.  I went to college in Buffalo, NY and graduated from Buffalo State College.  I earned my master's degree in Educational Leadership from George Mason University.  I am still a big New York sports fan.  I root for the Buffalo Bills, Buffalo Sabres, and New York Yankees.  I enjoy being outside with my kids and playing golf.  I hope to help make this the best year yet!
