I’ve spent most of my adult life working with words, not numbers. I spent nine years teaching high school English and coaching tennis at an independent school in New Jersey. After graduating with a degree in English from Dartmouth College, I pursued graduate degrees in English and creative writing before landing in a classroom of my own.
Despite my literary past, I’m a math geek at heart: some of my earliest memories consist of solving (interminably long) long division problems on dinner napkins with my accountant father, charting my modest Little League Baseball exploits in composition books, and scoring fantasy football games by hand.
I moved to Durham with my wife, Molly, and two daughters, Abby (2) and Natalie (eight months). I’m a huge New York sports fan with an embarrassing number of jerseys to match. When not playing ping-pong in the Fox Student Center, I can be found on the fairways and greens of the Washington Duke golf course, dining at a table at Nanataco, or meandering around the Durham Farmers’ Market.
I chose to be a part of the Fuqua community, because I want to be surrounded by people who lead by making those around them better.
I’m excited to explore career options that allow me to exercise both sides of my brain.
