I have been teaching and coaching at Williston for almost thirty years. In addition to teaching English and coaching the varsity baseball team, I am the 9th Grade Dean, run the 9th Grade Program with Allison Marsland, and head John Hazen White House, the 9th and 10th Grade Boys’ Dormitory on the Residential Quad. My wife, Sarah, established and runs Williston’s Writing Center and teaches in the English Department. Our son Will ’22 is a recent graduate, and our daughter Anna ’24 is a current Williston student, so it is definitely a family affair!

BA Amherst College 1994; MA Middlebury College 2002; MEd Columbia University 2007

Fun fact:
At 28 years and counting, I have the longest streak of consecutive seasons coaching a varsity sport at Williston.
