Biography: I was born in Carbondale Illinois and lived there until I was 18. I went to college in Missoula MT and majored in history with a minor in English. I moved to Shanghai China and taught English as a second language for 2 years in 2014, and upon returning I went back to school to get a Masters of Education. During that time I also developed and taught an ESL program for refugees coming to Montana. I moved back to St Louis to be close to my family and teach at Roosevelt in 2020 (Great timing right?).
I got married in Montana in 2019 and my wife is a nurse at Barnes Jewish hospital. We both love travelling and try to go as many places as we can. In addition to living in China I spent a semester studying in the UK and a semester student teaching in India. The most amazing place I have ever been was Mongolia. I also love reading, cooking, eating, watching movies, playing video games, and my two cats: Skraggles and Horus.
