Me on the Sunken Garden Trail, 2010

Who am I?

This is a complex question. I am continually redefining who I am. The external pressures of life change me daily. I am not the same person I was yesterday, and am not the person I will be tomorrow. While I am not the person I want to be, I am quite happy with myself.

Family Man

My wife Laurie, daughter Lizzie, and son Chris are the best things in life. They are continually challenging me to be better. I give nearly everything I have to them. I am proud of my two successful children, and of my wife who has had too much thrown at her, but she keeps going on.

Educator

People always ask me what I do. It is simple, I teach. I treat every moment as a teachable moment. In my job at Bradford School, and as a 'coach' for Elliott-West End Baseball and Soccer, I try to make the people around me more knowledgable.

Cyclist
