I was born in Ankeny, a suburb of Des Moines Iowa. I grew up and went to college to be a Social Studies teacher and love politics. After I got married to the most beautiful woman in the world I decided to go on an adventure with her and live and teach in Brazil. I currently teach fourth grade in Rio de Janeiro.
The idea of this blog is mainly to keep everything written down for myself, but it will also help me keep in contact with friends and family back home. I have no idea how often I will update. We will see.
