I am certified in social studies (K-12) in the state of New Jersey and I have inspired students at the middle and high school levels. Technology and its place in education are my passion. I am on the cutting edge of technology trends and how technology can be integrated into the classroom. I am a creative, detail-oriented, and tech-savvy educator who is never short on innovative ideas, energy, and or the desire to get involved in my school community.
I have developed and presented professional development workshops to teachers and collegiate faculty and personnel about social media and connected learning. New technologies are always becoming available and I enjoy expanding educators' understanding and use of these innovations.
I am very active in the use and growth of my professional learning network allows me to share my thoughts and ideas with others and contribute to conversations happening in the world of education technology. My current creative adventure is the House of #EdTech, an audio podcast, where I explore and talk about the latest tools being used in schools. I will be interviewing educators and sharing their expertise with my listeners.

I moved to New Jersey with my parents and younger brother when I was seven years old. I am a proud graduate of Spotswood High School (’99) where I could be seen on-stage in the drama club and on the diamond as a 3-year member of the varsity baseball team.
Currently, my wife and I currently reside in Monmouth county with our son Miles and rascal chihuahua, Bambi. We love riding our bikes, cooking great tasting dinners, and spending time with our family and friends! We always have something fun to do as we also enjoy the excitement and challenges of being first time parents!
I also enjoy playing basketball, baseball, softball and I am a knowledgeable sports fan. I love going to Yankees games and watching the Knicks, Rangers, and the football Giants. In my free time I also enjoy graphic design, web design, and video editing.
