I joined the Compass community in 2012 as a humanities teacher and advisor. I was born and raised in the Boston area, and moved back to Beantown in 2003 after graduating from Colgate University in central NY state. There, I met my wife (a native Vermonter) and put off my teaching career in favor of a 5-year stint as a brewer. In 2011 we moved to Vermont in order to pursue two goals: living in a wonderful quiet setting, and my teaching aspirations.
I gained teacher certification through the Upper Valley Educators Institute while interning at Rivendell Academy High School and The Sharon Academy Middle School. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, jogging, skiing, biking, gardening, playing fetch, and generally being outdoors.
