Greetings. I am the Principal of Fair Haven Union High School in Vermont, a school committed to producing world-class learners. I am committed to making inquiry and passion-based learning the center of educational reform. I BELIEVE ALL STUDENTS MUST INQUIRE, RESEARCH, COLLABORATE WORLDWIDE, PUBLISH AND REFLECT.

Fair Haven Union High has earned Best High School Awards in 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016 and 2017 (U.S News and World Report and Newsweek).

My athletic interests include long-distance skating, ultra marathons, obstacle course racing and high jumping. Formerly a teacher of Medieval Studies, I am passionate about the Viking Age and Medieval cathedrals. Fortunately, I am able to connect most of my passions with travel.

When not with my family, running or skating, I prefer to be riding my Indian Chief.
