I am an educator with almost 20 years of teaching and advising experience who enjoys writing and photography. A native of western New York, I recently moved arrived to Syracuse to be closer to my family.Prior to our move, we lived in the Pittsburgh area from the 90s until quite recently, and I will always have an affinity for the Steel City.

This site is divided into two main components. The first is a long-form resume detailing my experience as a teacher and academic advisor. It contains a list of the classes I have taught with brief descriptions of each course’s focus. I have attached syllabi, handouts, or a combination of the two to most of the classes.

The second major component is a portfolio page with samples of my photography. I have photographed sporting events for several clients as well as a number of weddings, but I would not call myself a professional photographer in a strict sense.

The sections below provide a quick summary of some of my skills, and visitors can quickly access my portfolios and contact information at the bottom of the page or by visiting the portfolio and contact pages using the menus in the header and footer.
