What I love about Durham Academy: Above all, the people - and the opportunity to build authentic, interdependent, durable relationships with so many of them. Also, I love that DA is serious about walking the talk of our mission.
What inspired my career in education: A series of extraordinary teachers and coaches inspired me - first that I might be able to give back some of what I'd gotten from them, and second that the life of an educator was eternally fresh, challenging and rewarding.
My favorite spot at Durham Academy: Any auditorium seat or athletic sideline - watching an unsure student take a risk to be their most authentic and excellent self.
My most valued DA Graduate character trait: Generosity. It fuels and encapsulates so many of the others.
When I'm not on campus, you might find me: Walking in a forest, swimming in an ocean, or eating dark chocolate - ideally with my wife and children.
You might not know: I've picked tumbleweeds in Albuquerque, worked on a SWAT team in Omaha, and played tennis with Charles Barkley in Barcelona.
