I am an alumnus of Worcester Polytechnic Institute and I am a graduate of Antioch with a Master’s Degree in Environmental Studies/Conservation Biology. I stepped in to MSA in January of the ’12-’13 academic school year teaching biology and environmental science to Mount Snow Academy students. It was very rewarding; the students are great, as are my colleagues, and I look forward to many more years at MSA. Mount Snow is my favorite mountain in the southern Vermont area. Working at the Academy has been an inspirational experience for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is due to the enthusiasm students bring to class each week.

Although I do have a penchant for acting from time to time, most of my other recreational activities involve being in the midst of nature, hence, teaching biology and environmental science at MSA has been an intellectual complement to my outdoor activities. A lover of skiing, snowboarding, and basically all winter activities, I live in Dummerston, VT in the winter and try to spend my summers on the Cape fishing and boating.
