I spent most of my life in and around the city of Philadelphia.  In 1996, I graduated high school in South Jersey.  I attended the University of Pennsylvania, graduating in 2000 with a bachelor's of science in engineering in computer science and engineering.

After college, I worked as part of a team creating a worldwide system of atmospheric nuclear detectors to enforce the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty.  I programmed mostly in C and JAVA.  In 2003, I attended Case Western Reserve University School of Law, graduating with a Juris Doctor in 2006.

For a number of years, I practiced law in pharmaceutical litigation.  I then practiced intellectual property law until 2019.

In 2019, I changed careers to teaching high school math, the finest career decision I've ever made.  I've taught Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Probability & Statistics, and Trigonometry.

In 2022, my family and I moved to South Carolina, and I began to teach at Darlington High School.  Currently, I teach Probability & Statistics CP.

Mathematically, I am interested in the Collatz Conjecture, and more generally in the geometric properties of numbers.  Outside of school and math, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing Japanese RPGs (currently Live A Live), complaining about Philly sports, and arguing with people who are Wrong On The Internet.
