I joined the Odyssey community in 2000, as an intern teacher through a University of Denver graduate program. Since that time, I've been captivated by EL Education schools and the engaging, joyful, and meaningful learning possibilities within their walls. For the last 20+ years, my education journey has included various teaching and leadership roles at Odyssey, RMSEL, APS, and within EL Education. I am passionate about helping students see how much they matter in the world- their brilliance and effort are already making our world a better, more beautiful place- and they are capable of more than they know.
At my core, I am an ocean-loving New Englander but have now lived in Colorado longer than I ever lived in Massachusetts or Maine. I feel equally at home in the mountains and I love adventuring close to home with my wife (MB), daughter (Josie), and our friends. We’re happy biking, skiing, camping, or paddleboarding, and especially enjoy escapades in our VW camper van. I also appreciate recharging with a healthy dose of downtime- taking care of my plants, being a bit crafty, playing games, baking, meeting up with friends, and reading. It feels like a dream come true to be at Odyssey again, and I can’t wait to return to what makes my heart most happy- designing and teaching amazing learning expeditions while building community with students and families.
