Dad to Violet and Donovan.  Husband to @shannoninottawa.  Principal at the mighty J.H. Putman Public School in Ottawa, Ontario.

My current area of interest is cultivating and harnessing the creative spirit of school communities in support of student achievement.  In an effort to cultivate my own creative spirit, I am currently writing and recording  a song cycle based around the ukulele tentatively called Pop Songs for the Plague…really poppy stuff, I swear…

Our latest book, “The Road To Greatness” highlights the hardships, failures and the eventual success of some of the greatest people ever lived. It serves as an inspiration for kids facing adversity and challenges. It also allows kids to understand that success is a result of handwork, perseverance and dedication.
