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 Program Coordinator in the IMF Institute, which was the IMF's training department for economists from all over the world. During this time, I enrolled with University of Phoenix to receive 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. Unfortunately, my dog Bongo the Boxer passed away in December of 2013, and my wife's pug Hunter passed away in September 2019.
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). Southern High School was the state runner up for Boys Lacrosse in 2008.
I taught at Kent County High School from the 2009-2010 through the 2014-2015 school years.
