Operations Manager
I came to Royal Oak as an infant having been born in Detroit, so I consider myself a lifelong Royal Oaker. My wife and I met in Kindergarten at Lockman Elementary School and went on to Keller Jr. High and Dondero. We have raised both of our boys here and live about two blocks from where we grew up.

I started working for Royal Oak Schools out of high school and was hired a year later in 1985. I started in custodial, moved to maintenance, and have been in charge of the HVAC department for close to 25 years.

I have done virtually every maintenance job inside of, outside of, on top of, and (unfortunately) underneath every building we have and many we don't have anymore.

I am honored to move in as the Operations Manager (2022) and feel it will be a natural step forward in my career with the district.

Outside of work we keep bees, I like RC vehicles, and I have been an Assistant Scoutmaster with Local Troop 1627 for 10 years.
