Though the village has evolved over the last few millenia, it still takes one to raise the youth. Myself and my colleagues in DUS are here to be members of your village.

My favorite place I have traveled is Peru because it was the first time I was able to see an entire country from the city and pacific coast to the desert and up into the Andes Mountains.

My favorite job growing up was being a lifeguard at the town’s public golf club during high school and college. It sat on top of a mountain where you could see the New York City July 4th fireworks.

You may not know this about me, but in second grade I wrote a poem that was published in a poetry book.

Something someone told me that I still live by today: Take each day as it comes and do your best to be fully present at all times. Learn from tough times as they help shape who you are; cherish good times but know they won’t last forever.

To satisfy my sweet tooth, I enjoy Cheesecake and Milkshakes.

If I could only have one book to read, it would be Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari.

My favorite things to eat are oxtail with rice and peas and anything I’ve never tried before.
