I've worked at Menlo since 1996. In my first ten years I taught U.S. History and AP Economics and chaired the History Department. In 2006 I became one of Menlo’s college counselors and the Director of Academic Advising.
After earning a BS in Economics with a concentration in Finance from the Wharton School and a BA in Urban Studies from the University of Pennsylvania, I taught for three years at Midland School in Los Olivos, California. I then spent a year doing middle market mergers and acquisitions work. I finished a Master’s in Education at Stanford in 2003 and became a National Board Certified Teacher in 2004. I currently serve as the Co-Chair of the AP Microeconomics Development Committee and have taught professional development workshops for AP Economics teachers across the United States, in China and the Middle East.
I am an avid climber and hiker, and I love to spend time outdoors with my wife and two sons.
