Finding topics that get cadets genuinely excited and interested is the best thing about teaching here. Fishburne is a unique place to learn and grow along with the lessons of tradition and order you expect at a military-type school. I like that we can bring boys from all walks of life together to understand what it takes to be a man and a leader in the 21st century. The wide range of opportunities our young men can pursue inside and outside of the classroom is the icing on the cake. 

I’m a proud 2008 graduate of Fishburne Military School, and a 2012 graduate of the Virginia Military Institute with a Bachelor of Arts in English, and a minor in Education. I also earned my TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) in Moscow Russia, certified in 2014. I recently graduated from Mary Baldwin University in 2022 with a Master’s degree in Education with a concentration in Authentic Learning and Leadership. This is my 10th year as a teacher, 6 of which were working and living in Russia.  

Outside of work, I love the outdoors, traveling, and participating in historic reenactments. I also like to relax with a great film or video games and maintain my vegetable/herb garden on campus.
