I earned a BA in Geography from Dartmouth College in 1987 and studied away in Kenya my junior year. I have an MA in (Economic) Geography from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where I completed a thesis on the location and geographic diffusion of small business incubators in the U.S.
I grew up on a small, non-working farm in Pennsylvania. I worked in Admissions at Dartmouth for two years post graduation and worked in the Dean’s Office at Carnegie Mellon University for two years and directed the Residential Life Program there for three years. I started at Bowdoin in July 1996 as the Dean of First-Year Students. I am an obsessive-compulsive Red Sox fan, outdoor enthusiast, vegetable gardener, antique collector, and the father of two and spouse of one!
I earned a BA in Art History from Princeton University in 1988. I have an M.Ed from Harvard University, 1995.
I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, where I attended Shady Side Academy and developed my passion for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Upon completing college,I taught English in Thailand and Japan through the Princeton-in-Asia (PiA) Program. I then returned to the States to direct the PiA Program and work in Residential Life at Princeton. After teaching for two years at St. Stephens and St. Agnes School in Alexandria, VA, I came to Bowdoin in 1997. I live in Portland with my husband and two children and enjoy spending time at the beach and in the mountains.
I have a BA in Social Relations & Psychology from Lehigh University; an MA in social Relations & Counseling from Lehigh University and a PhD in Sociology from the UMass, Amherst.
I have spent a number of years as a faculty member, most recently in Soc/Anthro at Bowdoin where I taught courses in Criminology, Gender & Race & Ethnic Relations.

I moved to Maine in 2002 and live in Yarmouth with my husband and three children.

I earned a B.A. from Wesleyan University in 2002 where I majored in Latin American Studies with a concentration in Government. In 2005 I earned a J.D. from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law.
I was born in East Harlem, NY (El Barrio), and raised primarily in a suburb an hour north NYC before returning to El Barrio after college. I have always had an interest in working toward social justice, to help empower underrepresented people. During law school I worked for The Legal Aid Society and the Innocence Project. Before coming to Bowdoin, I worked as a public defender in the Bronx for five years. I now reside in Brunswick with my husband Brian, and two small children, Isabella and Gabriel. In the remaining free time, I enjoy running, which has replaced my first love, martial arts. Over the years I have studied Karate and Shaolin Kung Fu.
