It is an honor and a privilege to serve this proud school community as the new Principal of Chandler High School. My wife Shaka, is an employee of CUSD and together we have two elementary aged children Michael and Maliah. Chandler High has always played a critical role in the city's growth and success for decades, and I am excited to join a team of deeply dedicated professionals committed to ensuring the success of all students and families both past and present who have called CHS home.

My Education and Professional Background

While this is my first year as a school Principal here at Chandler High School, it is my 8th year in administration and 15th in the education profession. As a CUSD graduate, I went to Tucson, where I earned my degree in Secondary Education and History. After I completed my bachelor's degree, I then completed my masters program from Northern Arizona University in Educational Leadership. I have a taught and or been an administrator at the elementary, middle school and high school levels.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that all students have the ability to learn and that I have a professional obligation to ensure success in their academic and professional lives. I look forward to playing a part in the development of our future leaders. GO WOLVES!
