My Family and Me

Curious about the name?  So was I.

My first effort to show my kids on the web

The latest crop of kid photos

I'm an uncle!  Way cool!  And my l'il brother Adam has a band called The Impulse that you should listen to.  Even if you don't think you will like them, you will.

My Professional Life

Germantown Academy: I'm both a teacher and an alum!

My degrees are in medieval history

I teach courses in AP European History and AP Art History.  I'll be giving a talk this year at the AP Annual Conference on integrating knowledge of the medieval world into a survey of modern Europe  titled "What use are the Middle Ages?"   Here is Part I and Part II.

My courses are all on Blackboard.  Contact me if you're interested in the technology or the course content.  

Inspired by a talk at the AP Annual Conference, I decided to offer my students the chance to make their own art-themed music videos.  Here are the results.

This year, I'm teaching a course in Military History.  In an effort to get seniors working with local historians, I have come up with the Revolutionary War Project.

These guys and these guys gave me degrees.  Go figure.

My coolest-ever part time job was working in the medieval manuscript collection of the Beinecke Library.  One of the first things I did there was catalog an archve found in an Italian Castle.

My Hobbies and Interests

Nerdy thoughts and ruminations.

Yep.  I'm a man in his forties who plays role-playing games.

I also play military-simulation wargames.

I've been a Phillies fan since I was four.  *sigh*  Maybe next year...
