Favorite verse: “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” Proverbs 27:17
Education Background: I have a bachelor’s degree from Dartmouth College and a law degree from Harvard Law School.
Educational Experience: I love science and teaching. I started as a volunteer assistant teacher in HCS high school Chemistry a few years ago. I am very grateful that HCS invited me to join the high school science faculty on a part-time basis this year.
All About Me: Outside of teaching, I run a “venture studio” incubating technology start-ups for a large management consulting firm. My hobbies include trail running, pickleball, choral music, cooking, and coaching. I live in Newbury Park with my wife Kylee and sons Gunther and Roderick. We attend Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Thousand Oaks.
