I grew up in upstate New York, in a small town near Oneida Lake. I attended the State University of New York at Binghamton (now Binghamton University), where I earned a BA in Chemistry and German Language and Literature. As an undergraduate, I spent a semester at the University of Tübingen, in southwestern Germany. Directly after college, I earned an M.S. and Ph.D. in biophysical chemistry from the University of Rochester, where I also did post-doctoral work in protein crystallography. I worked for a year at a start-up pharmaceutical company in the Boston area before beginning my career as an educator. I taught at Dana Hall School and Arlington High School before joining the faculty at The Bromfield School
I enjoy reading, playing Words with Friends (even though Mr. Wass usually beats me), playing the flute, bicycling through the neighborhood, and photographing my children.
