I was born on Long Island, N.Y., where I lived for twelve years until my parents decided the country was the place they wanted to be, so they loaded up the Ford and we moved north to the Lake George area. After high school, I attended S.U.N.Y @ Oswego. Go, Great Lakers!
I taught for a year at St. Mary's Academy in Rensselaer, NY and then escaped the weather and moved south in 1993. Fortunately, I was hired here at Central Cabarrus High School. After over twenty years, I consider this more than a school; it's a second home.
When I'm not teaching English and cracking corny jokes, I spend time with my family, drive to my sons' numerous activities, search out new music online, play way too much fantasy sports, and attempt to get my 48 year-old self into shape.
In addition to teaching, I work to facilitate Central's Beacons, a group of 100+ upperclassmen leaders who act as mentors for incoming freshmen.
I look forward to meeting all of you and beginning another great semester here at Central Cabarrus High School, but you better get used to me talking about my favorite teams: the New York Yankees, the Carolina Panthers, the Carolina Hurricanes, the Michigan Wolverines, and my graduate alma mater, the Charlotte 49rs!
