About Me...

I am currently the Educational Technology Chair and Computer Science Department Chair at The Buckley School in Sherman Oaks, CA. I teach three computer science courses at Buckley, including AP® Computer Science.

I have a BA in History from UCLA and will graduate with a Master’s in Educational Technology from Pepperdine University in the summer of 2009. I have taught computer science and served as Head Coach of the Varsity Girls’ Volleyball team at Buckley for the past seven years.

I am a strong believer in project-based learning and constructivist classrooms. I teach two online computer programming classes each summer and utilize numerous Web 2.0 tools to facilitate learning.

I would describe myself as a very upbeat, adaptable person. My interests include golf, volleyball, and wakeboarding. I spend most of my time wedding planning with my beautiful fiancée Erin and playing with my English Bull Dog named Lilly, aka "Piggy."
