Key Roles

Welcome to the fun and exciting world of CES where we Care, Explore and Succeed!

I feel very proud and honored to be able say that I have been involved in the development of such a wonderful learning environment in Carstairs since 1999!  In my seventeen years in Carstairs, I have taught all grades in some capacity from Kindergarten to grade 12. This is my 27th year in education overall and my fifth year at Carstairs Elementary School where I have been Vice Principal for the last four years and now Principal. CES is truly an extraordinary place to work filled with amazing staff and students, strongly supported by the family oriented community of Carstairs.

I grew up in Calgary but have lived the past 26 years in Airdrie with my wife and two daughters. I grew up a huge sports fan and consider myself a Calgary Flames fanatic! Go Flames! I love spending as much time as I can outdoors whether it is gardening, walking, biking, playing tennis, being at the lake or spending time in the mountains.

If you have any questions about our school please feel free to email me anytime.
