Welcome to Sunrise Elementary. I'm honored to serve as the principal of this amazing school. We have fabulous students, a dedicated staff, and incredibly supportive parents and community partners. We are the Eagles and we SOAR each and every day (Strive to do your best, Offer Kindness, Act Responsibly, Respect Self and Others). My hope and expectation is that all students at Sunrise feel valued and supported to become the very best versions of themselves.

I began as principal here in the 2014-15 school year. Prior to that, I served as principal at Kenmore Elementary and assistant principal at Woodmoor Elementary. Before becoming a building administrator, my teaching career included a stint overseas (Shanghai, China) as well as here in the Northshore School District.

On the personal side, my wife and I have four kids ranging from middle school age to elementary school age. My experiences as a parent gives me the opportunity to relate very well with the parents and students I work with here at Sunrise.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions about our school.
