    In His Words

    I created the ESL program at George Stevens Academy starting in 2006. After a few years working for a newspaper, I returned to GSA in 2018 and couldn't be happier. It feels like coming home.

         I am blessed to have traveled extensively. I have visited or worked in many countries and can speak at least a little French, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Italian, Portuguese, Wolof, Mandinka and Russian. 

         I'm an avid home cook and vegetable gardener, love hiking and turkeyball (a tennis drill), go for quick ocean dips almost every week in the winter, and aim to live a simpler life in a tiny home someday. I am an avid sudoku player. Oh, and I now have a cribbage board in my office just in case someone wants to play. No mugging.
