Bio:

• Family moved to Connecticut after graduation, and started college in Virginia.
• Life at an all-men university sucked when weekends came. Hitching 50 miles up and down US 81 for a date grew tiresome, and since all my dorm friends were from north of Mason-Dixon, what was I doing here, so I transferred to school in NYC.
• English lit and philosophy kept me in college, but kept me out of a job soon after.
• Wouldn’t commit to law school after working as a paralegal (yup, I was one of the first), so I wound up where everyone winds up when nothing else is going on: Wall Street
• Around the same time I married the smartest person I know, Jill.
• Options sales/trading by training, I ended up in arbitrage until that game died after the dot.com boom/bust.
• Bored, and with my boys in college, I began to think of influential people in my life, and it turned out they were all teachers.
• I, too, always had a secret desire to teach (Yes, I really, really liked reading e.e cummings with Mr. Irwin, Bartleby with Mrs. Huggins, and the Beats with Mr. Mecklenburger…) so I started envisioning the life of an aesthete teaching Shakespeare and Wordsworth until I finally dropped.
• I was accepted into the New York City Teaching Fellows, but they didn’t need English teachers. Since my finance career qualified me to teach math, I said what the hey, I just want to teach.
• Going on my fourth year, I couldn’t be happier.
