In October of 1973, I was a walk-on for University of Washington’s Crew and my life changed forever. I found one of my passions in life.
Since then I have
· Taught grades 4, 5, 6 at Manchester Elementary from 1980 – 2005
· Taught at Explorer Academy from 2005- present
· Three sons have all graduated from SKHS, are successful in their careers and most importantly happy in life
· My wife owned Bayside Photography for 40 years before retiring this year
In 2015 I was thrilled to find Clam Island Rowing Club in Silverdale. I currently row with their Masters group three times a week. I have also been an assistant coach for their junior’s team and their adult Learn to Row team.
Our coaching staff’s enthusiasm, professional knowledge, and drive will help our crew become one of the top junior’s rowing teams in the state.
