A little bit about me.... after high school I joined the U.S. Navy, which is where I started working with data processing and computer programming. After my five years were up I went back to college for computer science, english and education.

Several years were spent working as a computer programmer, which was a lot of fun. I have also traveled a good bit and have lived in Germany, Virginia, Illinois, Georgia and Texas, although Massachusetts is my original home. I have three children who all went to school here.

This is my 15th year here at Sandwich High School. Classes taught include Computer Science & Digital Literacy, Web Design, AP Computer Science A, AP Computer Science Principles and Intro Computer Programming.
