A former newspaper journalist, I started teaching at an outdoor school (Sierra Outdoor School) in California in 2003. After graduating in 2006 from Smith College with a graduate degree in education, I have worked as a classroom teacher, administrator and coach.
Working with young people, who always remind me to be optimistic, fair, kind and light-hearted.
My family is my favorite thing in the world, including my 3 year-old daughter Sadie, my wife Cat, my mom Reggie (a former kindegarten teacher at Olander Elementary) and my Golden Retriever Otis. I also love to golf, bike and swim.
