I am so excited to be joining the Math team at High Tech High! I hail from Northern California but have lived in San Diego since 2012. My educational background is in Economics, receiving my Bachelors at UC Davis and my Masters at SDSU. After spending years in finance and market analysis in the Energy sector, I found myself looking for more collaborative, communicative, and fulfilling work.
I always loved working with kids, teaching tennis and chess camps through high school and college. During my masters I found that I loved the academic education process when I taught undergraduate Macroeconomics 101. I get most excited about helping students draw connections between the class material and the world around them! The math classroom is such an important place to deepen these connections and help all students emerge math literate and confident.
Outside of the classroom, you can find me playing ultimate frisbee or tennis, exploring coffee shops with my wife, Mali, playing with our cats, or buried a game of chess.
