In a previous life I studied electrical engineering & developed software. I hold a bachelor's degree from a liberal arts college in Baltimore and a master's degree from Clemson University. I've designed antennas, crunched Fortran, and written video games. While I was at Clemson I taught labs to undergraduates and this is where I first discovered my love of teaching.
About ten years ago, life began to steer me back towards the humanities I had studied in college. I took up languages, fiction, and poetry. Latin has since become one of my favorite subjects and I am passionate about showing students why it remains so important. I seek left/right brain balance in my life and I believe many of the challenges we face today as a society will require a balanced approach. We need logic and analysis, we need technology, but we also need the humanities. A proficiency in Latin unlocks the literature of the Roman people, one of the most precious treasures our ancestors have passed down to us. I want to explore it with others.
