Interests

I thoroughly enjoy the outdoors from hiking to fishing and camping. I have an enthusiasm for reading, both professional and pleasure literature. I am athletically inclined and when I am not coaching you will find me cheering on the current Boston or New England sports teams. Next to teaching, my largest passion lies in lobstering and being on the ocean.
