I am a father of four girls: Kate-Austen (for Jane Austen), Emerson (for Ralph Waldo), Hadley (for Hemingway's first wife), and Scarlett (because we loved the name!). My wife Jess and I have been married since 2010, and we share a passion for writing, reading, and family adventures. I have taught in boarding schools since 2006, with a brief intermission for my master's degree in literature from James Madison University. From 2010-2018, I worked at Christ School in Arden, NC, on the outskirts of the Pisgah National Forest. In 2018, I accepted a position at Park Tudor School (Indianapolis) as its next Director of Curriculum and Instruction. We are now Hoosiers and live in Irvington, just east of downtown. While working at PT, I will finish my second master's in Educational Leadership at Indiana University (@ Bloomington) in the spring of 2022.
