I"m pretty sure I've been an educator my whole life. I started officially teaching in 2004 when I moved to Colorado from Pennsylvania. I grew up in the Philly area, and moved to the high country in Vail where I taught for eight years. I moved to Durango and taught down in that area for three years as well. After my wife received a great opportunity to work in Boulder, we came to the front range a year ago where I taught in Jeffco Schools. This year I was welcomed into Rocky Mountain as a 5th grade teacher. I'm super psyched to be a part of this staff and incredibly happy with my amazing class. I am a very avid rock-climber, mountain biker, snowboarder, coach, and traveler. I play guitar in my spare time and just LOVE being in the mountains.
