Media Specialist at Long Branch High School and Middle School, splitting my time between the two. I am in my fifth year as a School Media Specialist, and have worked with all grade levels. Before that, I worked as a Graphic Designer for 15 years, 11 of those on-campus at Rutgers University in New Brunswick.
Professionally, my interests include literacy and research skills. I believe that in an information-rich environment, every individual must practice the ability to sort fact from fiction. I believe all reading is good reading, and I am a lifelong advocate for comics and graphic novels.
Personally, I enjoy surfing, reading, and learning new skills.
I live in Ocean Township with my wife, 2 Children, and my dog, Stella.
