I am from Warwick, Rhode Island, and have lived in Maryland and Germany. I am pleased to call Huntsville, Alabama my home. My hobbies are reading, writing, and travelling. I spent many years as an arts journalist, technical writer for a contractor to NASA, and a scriptwriter for a 2010 Auburn University documentary.

I have been teaching in Huntsville City Schools for over nineteen years (fourteen of those years have been spent teaching AP English Language and Composition). I am presently an ETS (College Board) reader for the national AP English Language and Composition exam. I have served as an A+ CR table leader for the state-wide mock AP English Language and Composition exam; and in various consulting roles with A+ CR and Laying the Foundation (now NMSI). I currently teach AP English Language and Composition, and the AP English Language Dual Enrollment Credit Assurance Program (EH 101 and EH 102) offered through Calhoun Community College.
