I teach physics at Lynn English High School, where I have been happily employed since 2011. (Go Bulldogs!) Prior to teaching at LEHS, I taught chemistry at various other schools in the Boston area. Chemistry remains my favorite of the sciences, but physics is my favorite subject to teach. I also coach the LEHS Science Team.

I hold a National Board of Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) certification in Science: Adolescence & Young Adulthood. I am an active participant in the Boston University Physics Teacher Network (BU-PTN) and a co-author of one of the inquiry lab experiments in the AP Chemistry lab manual. I also teach AP Physics workshops for Mass Insight Education.

Prior to teaching, I worked in the pharmaceutical and software industries.

Mini Biography
I was born in December 1964, which places me squarely on the cusp between the "baby boomers" and "generation X". I grew up in Corning New York where I graduated as salutatorian of Corning-Painted Post East High School in 1983. I earned two bachelor of science (S.B.) degrees from MIT, one in chemical engineering (1987) and one in biology (1988).

After college, I worked for five years as a chemical process engineer for Advanced Magnetics, and then eight years as a software engineer and operations manager for several startup companies. I started my teaching career in 2003.

I married my wife Nancy (a fellow MIT graduate) in 1996, and we went to Antarctica on our honeymoon. We have two amazing daughters.

My primary interests outside of school are music and dance. I play viola with Symphony by the Sea, the Reading Symphony Orchestra, and the New England Philharmonic and I sing and act with the North Cambridge Family Opera Company. I am the dance foreman (teacher) and lead musician for two morris dance teams: Red Herring Morris, an adult team, and Banbury Cross Morris, a children's team (age 9 through high school). I have a wide range of other hobbies and interests as well, including caving, scuba diving, coffee roasting, locksmithing, LARPs/roleplaying games, bicycling, travel, amateur radio, camping & hiking, computers, photography, community theater, skiing, trains, and coin collecting.
