Gender is an important piece of my identity. I use male pronouns and speak openly in the classroom about being a transgender man. Students look for role models in all aspects of their identity, whether it be personally or professionally, and I hope for some, I can be both. For more information about why using pronouns in the workplace is important, please see:
I am about 85% through completing my "48 4000-footer" list of hiking the 48 New Hampshire peaks that have an elevation of 4000 ft or higher (subject to other conditions). I also enjoy distance cycling as well as running with my dog, Molly. In addition, I completed the 2019 Harbor to the Bay AIDS Benefit ride; this is a 125-mile bike ride from Boston, MA to Provincetown, MA to raise money, awareness, and support for people living with HIV and hepatitis.
Currently in Durango, CO, I am enjoying the outdoor life of hiking, running, and distance cycling.
Dogs for Days
The milk to my coffee is my dog, Molly. I adopted her when she was 10 weeks old, and she was my loyal companion up to her death at almost 12 years old. She was an Australian Shepherd-Husky mix, so a bit of devil-on-one-shoulder, angel-on-the-other: Smart enough to know better, devious enough to do it anyway!
