I am a middle school teacher with over a decade of classroom experience teaching students to read, write, and problem-solve. I hold teaching certifications in English, Social Studies, and Elementary Education as well as Bachelor's and Master's degrees in the field of education. I regularly create and lead in-service opportunities for educators in how to incorporate best-practices with technology into their pedagogy.
Currently I write for a variety of internet sites including The Knowledge Roundtable and Chromebook.net. I also have experience writing long-form product reviews as well as articles pertaining to parenting adolescents. Some examples of my published work are included here; additional samples can be found on my Pinterest boards or provided upon request.
During a break in my education career, I served as a recruiter for IT professionals primarily in the financial sector. A key component of the position involved curating and revising resumes of candidates to feature relevant skills and experience. I continue to offer this expertise on a freelance basis.
My personal hobbies and interests are fairly diverse. I was an award-winning radio broadcaster at Ithaca College. I have experience building computers and designing home entertainment configurations with them for family and friends. I am a DIY enthusiast specializing in older home renovations as well as furniture building and design. I follow sports, technology, and political news closely. For fun, I spend time collecting and repairing retro video game systems, playing recreational league sports, and spending time at home with my wife and two dogs.
I pride myself on being diligent, motivated and detail-oriented. I take my work seriously and have the ability to adapt and adjust to the needs and requests of clients. I always honor my commitments and deadlines, often delivering early.
Currently, I am available for both short-term and long-term opportunities. I look forward to putting my skills to work for you!
