About Me:

I am entering my sixth year of teaching Social Studies in Candia. Each day brings unique challenges and I look forward to the discussions, debates, and insights that can be presented inside the classroom.

My wife and I have two sons and two dogs named Ollie and Cobra. My oldest son Harrison is two years old. He is currently unemployed and lives at home. We welcomed our second child Easton at the beginning of September.

When not teaching, my wife and I and spend a majority of our time chasing a toddler, taking him on new adventures and rooting for the Patriots & Red Sox.
