I am a proud graduate of Vanderbilt University, holding a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Arts in Political Science, with minor concentrations in Astronomy, Theatre, and International Relations. In the fall of 2020, I will begin my twelfth year as a teacher and my sixth year as Chair of the History Department at Washington Latin Public Charter School. Prior to teaching, I served as a representative to the United States Congress on behalf of the American Astronomical Society and as a consultant on the 2006 U.S. Senate Campaign of Ben Cardin of Maryland and the 2008 Presidential Campaign of President Barack Obama. Outside of school, I love running, fencing, playing baseball and dodgeball, as well as playing piano, organ, guitar, video games, and writing. I will always, and forever, cheer on my Baltimore Orioles, my Baltimore Ravens, and my Vanderbilt Commodores.
