I grew up in Maine where I attended an independent day school, playing both soccer and lacrosse, the two sports I have coached the most here at Williston, largely at the JV level. My concentration in graduate school was Hinduism, but I studied all the major religions in one form or another in undergraduate and graduate school. I taught at two other boarding schools before Williston, but have made Easthampton and Williston my home for almost two decades.

Loyola University Maryland (BA – Creative Writing); Harvard Divinity School (MTS – World Religions)

Fun fact:
When I’m not teaching, coaching, or being with my family, I love to follow professional European soccer, and more specifically, Tottenham Hotspur in the English Premier League.
