About Me


To learn and grow as a teacher in North Philly....and to find the best martini joint in Philly!


I am courteous, sincere, and full of laughter. I'm genuine, smile easily, and am quite self-reflective (probably irritatingly so, at times!). I love dogs, and wish I had the time to own one. 

I share an apartment near South Street in Philly with my brother, and teach History at a turnaround charter in North Philly. I love bad action flicks, walking through previously undiscovered (by me, at least) streets of Philly, and enjoying a glass of Malbec or Yuengling while chatting about Hamlet...or Monty Python, the front page of the Inquirer, or whatever other subjects come up. What else about me...I learned to drive stick 3 years ago and haven't looked back since, I've recently started watching "Dexter" and love it, and I'm certified to teach yoga (but nobody's crazy enough to pay me to teach it yet).

Wow,this seems like I'm writing a personal for an online dating site....5'9', brown eyes and hair, and I like long walks on the beach? (which I do, ironically) Etc etc etc. You get the point.


to give love is to give life
