I have been the Technology instructor and Assistant to Director of IT at Dublin School since 2008. I enjoy brevity and a long list of hobbies ranging from carpentry to mountain biking to playing piano. Before coming to Dublin, I spent my last semester of college living and studying mathematics in Budapest, Hungary and traveling around eastern Europe.

What book has made you think the most? This is a difficult question because I don't read anything without the expectation that it will make me think. Undoubtedly, philosophy would be the most thought provoking. To claim any single book as the most thought provoking, however, is impossible. For this reason, I will identify--sans context--some of my favorites and interpretation is left as an exercise for the reader:

Suttree - Cormac McCarthy
Shalimar the Clown - Salman Rusdie
The Malazan Book of the Fallen (Series) - Steven Erikson

How would your friends describe you in three words? They wouldn't. Three words cannot describe a person.

What is your favorite place on campus and why? This depends on what is my intent. For quiet, contemplative time, Eagle Rock is my favorite. I also enjoy spending hobby time in the wood shop and machine shop.

I am most happy when... I achieve an appropriate balance between working and quiet, reflective time.

What is your favorite outdoor activity? My favorite outdoor activity is definitely mountain biking. However, I also enjoy hiking and kayaking in the local area.
