I was homeschooled for the first seventeen years of my life by my mother, a certified teacher, in the Seton curriculum. Summer vacations consisted of camping trips to sites such as Gettysburg and Colonial Williamsburg, which contributed to my lifelong appreciation of history. This education was supplemented by courses at Gloucester County College, from which I graduated with an Associates Degree (A.A) in Arts and Sciences. I then transferred to St. Bonaventure University, graduating magna cum laude in 2010 with a Bachelor's Degree in general History. My introductory experience to the Spanish language was a semester abroad in Sevilla. My interests remain broad and unsated to this day, including history, literature, myth and an occasionally problematic fascination with fantasy literature. I have since channeled these into pursuit of a Master's Degree in American History and Culture. The next step will be a certification in ESL education.

I find a balance of vigorous exercise and leisure time essential to a focused mind. While I no longer play baseball or (roller) hockey, I run and ride my ten-speed often and watch an odd game when I can. Concerning leisure, I've been learning to play the guitar since I was fourteen and enjoy music ranging from classical to rock and hip hop.
