I’m a product of Klein ISD. I attended Benfer, Strack and graduated from Klein Oak, and have lived in Klein for most of my life. My wife Katie and I have two children who are also Klein ISD students, and my mom teaches in Klein ISD. My father is also a retired high school principal. I’m running for Trustee because I believe in preserving public education in our Klein community! I think we must do everything possible to ensure every student enters with a promise and exits with a purpose. My promise is to work relentlessly to make thoughtful and unbiased decisions and to give the students of Klein every possible advantage in learning. Having grown up in a home of educators, I know firsthand their tireless dedication. I know that hiring and keeping exceptional educators is essential to the success of Promise2Purpose. I will always work for EVERY student. Every student matters and deserves access to a quality education…this will be my mission! Further, you can count on me to maintain the incredible voice and community involvement that is at the very heritage of Klein ISD!
I bring the compassion and caring of a pastor to the board; I understand that every life is precious and has individual needs. My passion for leadership and learning is a gift from my grandfather who was a former superintendent of schools and a life-long educator. He instilled in me at a very young age the excitement and importance of being a forever learner.
Currently, I serve as the Pastor of Operations and COO of Champion Forest Baptist Church located in the middle of Klein ISD. My responsibilities include leading the Finance, HR, Communications, Facilities, and Technology teams. Previously, I served as the Director of Technology, and before Champion Forest, I worked as a senior project manager for a national design and application development firm. My technology and development experience compliment an incredible team of existing board members and will fill a much-needed area of expertise on the board. As technology becomes more prevalent and necessary in education, it is vital that the Board of Trustees also has expertise in technology, and I bring this experience to the table.
Voting for me will ensure that you have a reliable, reasonable, and vigilant citizen on the board…a person who understands education, technology, leadership, and the Klein community. I will make every decision based on the facts, always doing what is best for students. I will work every day to see Promise2Purpose become a reality in Klein ISD!
