I am proud to be joining Tapestry Public Charter School where I will be teaching High School Mathematics. I have 16 years of teaching experience, mostly at independent schools in the U.S. and overseas, as well as more than a dozen years working in the insurance industry (actuarial). Although born and raised in Minnesota I earned my BA in Mathematics at the University of Texas- Austin, where I also learned Spanish. After a brief stint in grad school, and a year teaching in Los Angeles, I began a 10-year adventure living and teaching in Latin America: Guatemala, Venezuela, and Brazil. I then transitioned to a career in insurance and a job in Chile. In 1998 my Venezuelan wife and I moved back to the United States. A few US based corporate jobs landed us in Atlanta where we now live with our two beautiful children (9 and 18) and our highly intelligent German Shepherd Dog. Hobbies have included running marathons, skin and scuba diving, paragliding, biking, water skiing, canoeing, reading, and travel. I returned to teaching six years ago because, compared to the corporate work I had been doing, it is both more important and much more fun.
