Clark University '11
Dublin School '07
After graduating from Dublin in 2007, I went on to complete my Bachelor's Degree in Political Science from Clark University in 2011. At Clark I captained my college team in soccer and went on to play professionally in Switzerland before returning to New Hampshire to begin my coaching career. I have coached competitively at the youth level for nearly 10 years, served as an assistant coach at York High School in Maine, and hold the USSF "F", "E", and "D" coaching licenses.
What book has made you think the most? The focus of my major in college was Middle East politics of the 19th & 20th century and there were a few books that I read that made me question ideas that most of us hold to be true about the region. One in particular that I remember was Veiled Sentiments by Lila Abu-Lughod, in which the author spent months living with a Bedouin tribe studying their social systems. One issue she tried to explain was why women wear veils and it really made me rethink my views on the matter.
What is your favorite course you have taken in high school or college? Other than any class I had with Mr. Weiss, I would probably say one of Dr. Doug Little's classes on Cold War Politics in college. I was and still am fascinated with the Cold War and never get tired of reading literature on the subject (including fiction).
What is your favorite place on campus and why? Having grown up on campus it's not easy to pick one but if I had to I would probably choose the Upper Field because I have so many great memories playing sports for Dublin, and the views from up there are amazing.
I am most happy when... I am either surrounded by friends and family or in the middle of an intense competitive game of soccer, tennis, golf, FIFA... you name it!
If I had a free afternoon I would... See if Mr. Wardlaw is up for a round of golf, finish a woodworking project at home, or head out for a walk with Max and Maple (my dogs).
