I am a Graduate of Roman Catholic High School for Boys in Philadelphia, PA Class of 1992. I attended Rider Univeristy for my freshman year and then transferred to East Stroudsburg University where I received my B.S. in Biology in 1996. I earned my M.A. in Human Perfromance and Health Promotion from the University of New Orleans in 2002. I started my teaching career at Mount Carmel Academy in New Orleans, LA. After Hurricane Katrina I moved back to the Philadelphia area and continued my teaching career. I am now in my sixth year at the Mary Shoemaker School and have become a resident of Woodstown, NJ. I also coach the Woodstown Boys Track and Field and Cross Country Teams.
