JOINED OXFORD COMMUNITY SCHOOLS
Welcome to Oxford High School! I am the former Principal at Lake Orion High School and Assistant Principal/Athletic Director at Oakview Middle School in Lake Orion. Prior to those roles, I held administrative positions in Michigan districts that encompass more than 18 years, including principal positions at Gaylord High School and Hanover-Horton High School. I am an active member of the Michigan and National Associations of Secondary School Principals and ASCD (Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development). Since 2002 I have served in the Michigan Army National Guard, Joint Maneuver Training Center in Camp Grayling, and I was on active duty with the United States Army at Fort Sill, Oklahoma from 1983 to 1985.
I am a die-hard Lions fan and sports enthusiast. I also enjoy traveling with my family, spending time with friends and relatives, cinema and live theater, and dining out. I live in Lake Orion with my wife Lorra and three children, Phillip, Madeleine and Sawyer.
I am fortunate and honored to be a part of the Oxford family. The pride demonstrated in the school and community is invigorating, and I am inspired by the forward thinking and determined efforts truly directed at serving the best needs of all students.
I am eager to earn my keep as a Wildcat!
