As an instructor here at Western Welding Academy, I pass my knowledge on from the past to the future. My father is a welder and I followed in his footsteps. I also wanted to become a welder because I love building things and I love the challenges that welding gives me. I have 10 years experience in oil and gas facilities and pipeline work doing mostly new construction and pipe welding. 

What I like most about teaching is that I get to help our students learn a craft that has given me great opportunities in my life and wonderful memories. The thing I like about Western Welding Academy versus other training programs is the level of talented and experienced welders I get to work with.

Outside of welding I enjoy spending time with my daughter and family and friends.
