Middle School Athletics

Athletics Director - Middle School


I started working at Menlo School as Middle School Athletic Director in 1997.

I received my BA and teaching credential in Adapted Physical Education from Cal State University, Chico. I taught physical education and coached at Town School for Boys in San Francisco for nine years before starting my tenure at Menlo School. Most of my time is devoted to my career as Athletic Director and coach. I have been involved in numerous professional associations and have had the opportunity to be a featured presenter with the California Association of Independent Schools over the past several years.

I love working with kids, coaching, working out and being a husband and father of two teenage boys. My wife and sons are very involved in athletics and share my passion for sports.
