I am a Senior MDiv graduate student at Princeton Theological Seminary. I live in Philadelphia, but hail from Lubbock, TX by way of Gruver, TX. I graduated in 2010 from The College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, VA with a degree in History and Religious Studies. Following matriculation from America’s second oldest, but most beloved university, I served as a teacher at a small inner-city school in New Haven, CT. While there, I taught Language Arts and Social Studies units, tutored all subjects, and specialized in a class called “Peace and Justice.” I paid special attention to pursuing a vocation that would allow me to continue the lifestyle I have worked to lead since I was in middle-school: loving learning and loving other people. I am continuing my work with high-promise youth in the city of Trenton through the PEI Probation and Intervention program, seeking to introduce a solid tutor into the lives of the young men and women who are seeking a second chance from the system. In my spare time, I play a lot of sports and strum the guitar while listening to country music. I look forward to working with you!
