Welcome to the JHS Culinary Arts Webpage!
I am so glad you stopped by! I am in my third year of teaching at JHS and teach courses such as Intro to Culinary Arts, Culinary Arts I, and Advanced Culinary Arts.  Before teaching, I received two bachelor's degrees in Music for  Composition and Music Education in 2013 from The University of Texas at Tyler.  I spent one studying Music Theory & Composition at Stephen F. Austin State University before purchasing and managing my own restaurant, Legends Burger Co., in Bullard, Texas.   I have since sold the restaurant in order to devote my full time to teaching.  My wife, Randa, teaches Elementary Music at West Rusk CCISD and I have one son, Graham, who is about 2 months old.  I have a passion for cooking and helping others to learn to cook.
