Hello families and community within the Tulalip Sovereign Nation and Marysville. I am a husband and father who cares deeply about supporting all students in my everyday work and leadership.

Serving as the Principal of Tulalip Heritage High School in the Marysville School District is a tremendous honor. I am committed to ensuring that Indigenous culture, ways of thinking, and knowing are integrated into our academic programming. I am excited to lead our students, staff, and community in deepening the Big Picture Learning Model for students. I have hope for healing of past injustices and for paving a strong and collective path forward for our youth. I am thankful to have an amazing partnership with the Tulalip Education Division, and I am excited to build strong relationships within the Tulalip Sovereign Nation and the greater Marysville community.

Big Picture Learning is an interest-based student-centered approach, putting student interests at the heart of their schooling. With the help of our community partners, students will engage in authentic real-world, and rigorous learning. Students will grow in 6 key areas: Knowing how to Learn, Personal Qualities, Social Reasoning, Empirical Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, and Communication. Students will develop their independence within the competencies deepening their understanding of their potential for graduation and beyond.

If you are interested in being a part of our community, please do not hesitate to contact me directly through Email
