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 cats Cody and Bethany, and our Uromastyx named Ares. In my free time I enjoy playing soccer and lacrosse with my son, building guitars as an amateur luthier, 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.
