I am a native Marylander and a graduate of Centennial High School (Howard County), where I was the lacrosse team captain in 1996. I graduated from Randolph-Macon College in 2000 with a BA in Business/Economics and German. I was the president of Phi Kappa Sigma Fraternity in 1999, president of the German Club 1999-2000, and president of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) 1999-2000. I won the Big Man on Campus award in 2000, and I was the Mens Lacrosse Team Unsung Hero award winner in 2000.
I started my career in Human Resources, before heading to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in 2001. I held several staff positions while at the IMF, including Assistant to the Head of Translation and Interpretation Services, and a Program Coordinator in the IMF Institute, which was the training department. During this time, I enrolled with University of Phoenix to receive all of the necessary mathematics and education credits to start teaching High School Mathematics.
My wife and I were married in 2005. Our son was born in 2006. We have several pets, including our pug Hunter and our cats Cody and Bethany. My boxer Bongo passed away December 9, 2013. In my free time I enjoy playing soccer and lacrosse with my son, as well as taking canoe and kayak trips all over the Eastern Shore.
I began my teaching career in the 2007-2008 school year with Southern High School. While there, I taught Algebra 1, Geometry, College Algebra, and Personal Finance/Business Math. I was the Boys JV Lacrosse Coach and a Boys Assistant Varsity Lacrosse Coach (2008 and 2009). Our program at Southern High School was the state runner up for Boys Lacrosse in 2008.

While at KCHS, I taught Algebra 2, Geometry, Precalculus, STEM Seminar, Trigonometry, and PLTW's Digital Electronics. I coached JV Field Hockey for two seasons, was the class advisor for the class of 2014 for all four of their years, and I was the Assistant Varsity Lacrosse Coach for six seasons (2010-2015).
