How long have you been at Bullis?

Since 2020.

What role or roles do you play at Bullis? If you are teaching faculty, what do you teach? 

Upper School English Teacher. I teach English II.

What made you decide to work in an educational setting? 

I had high school teachers who really cared about students, and made a difference for me during turbulent teenage years. Making that kind of positive impact while working with a subject I love drew me to teaching.

What is your favorite thing about working at Bullis?

At Bullis, the community doesn't begin and end at the classroom door; we have rich extracurricular programs that are important to the school's identity.

When not at Bullis, what interests do you pursue?

Before the pandemic, I would normally attend about 30 concerts per year.

Who is someone that inspires you and how?

NBA player Giannis Antetokounmpo recently re-signed with the Milwaukee Bucks rather than switching to a team that seems to have a better chance of winning a championship. Rather than skirting adversity, Giannis showed loyalty and determination.

What is the best book or production that you have read, watched, or listened to lately? 

I recently re-watched The Philadelphia Story (Katharine Hepburn, James Stewart, Cary Grant) and it was delightful.

What global challenge would you like to see tackled and how do you see yourself contributing to the positive change that you desire?

Climate change. My personal habits (diet, transportation) are in line with recommendations for minimizing our carbon footprints, but this issue is so big it needs to be addressed at the national and international levels.

What is one fun fact about you that others may not know or may surprise them?

I played D-III college football

Why would you tell a prospective family to choose Bullis?

Bullis understands that students aren't a monolith, and provides support and encouragement for students to pursue their gifts and passions both inside and outside the classroom.
