Italy is my hometown. I attended Stafford Elementary and graduated from Italy High School. I received my Bachelor's in Communication Arts with a Minor in Computer Graphics from East Texas State University (Texas A&M-Commerce).
Hired by Italy ISD in 2018 to join the IT Department, I am also an assistant coach for both Gladiator Football and Basketball. Go Italy!
