I moved here to Southern Utah in 2005 from Orlando Florida to work at Diamond Ranch Academy. I grew up wakeboarding and surfing and love the water! I have always enjoyed sports and most recently have started to road bike. I had the opportunity to live in Poland for two years as a missionary. Becoming familiar with a different culture, and serving the Polish people for two years had a tremendous impact on my life. I have two sons that are both studs and two daughters that are princesses and I love spending time with them! I have an incredible wife to whom I love with all my heart. We enjoy spending time together as a family!

Comments on DRA

I love Diamond Ranch Academy. The longer I am in this industry, the more impressed I become with Diamond Ranch Academy. The people that work at Diamond Ranch Academy are people that I want my sons and daughers to be surrounded by and learn from. The trademarked Real-Life Transition Program used at Diamond Ranch Academy is a program that I want my sons and daughters to experience. Even as an employee, Diamond Ranch Academy has changed my life. I am grateful to be a part of the Diamond Ranch Academy team!
