Welcome to Mr. Blues Page


I am a native Oregonian and a graduate from Illinois Valley High School. I earned a Bachelor of Science and Masters of Science in education from Southern Oregon University. I completed the Initial Administrator Licensure program and the Continuing Administrator Licensure program at Portland State University.

My professional career began as a middle school teacher and athletic coach at Shady Cove Intermediate School. It was a self-contained classroom where I taught multiple subject areas. I later moved to the Eagle Point Middle School as a PE and social studies teacher also serving as a coach.

My “licensed” administrative career began as an assistant principal at Douglas High School in Winston, Oregon. I later accepted the position of principal at Douglas High School. In 2010 I moved to the Portland area and was hired as the Vice Principal/Athletic Director for Rainier High School. Currently I serve as a Principal for RJSH School.

My wife Teri and I enjoy the opportunity of visiting our four kids and 13 grandchildren often. I also enjoy travel, sports, hiking, camping, and spending time with friends and family.
