Thoughts:
Three words that describe my work style... joyful, open-hearted, and tireless.

Someone I admire and consider a hero is... Michelle L'Heureux. Michelle was my wife Sare's maid of honor in our wedding—she was also a victim of the Boston Marathon bombings. Ten surgeries later, having lost more than half of her hearing, Michelle has run two marathons and recently returned from Orlando where she helped counsel victims of the Pulse nightclub attack. She is the embodiment of courage, resiliency, hopefulness, and joy.

My favorite children's author is... J. K. Rowling for Harry Potter's journey through Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

A Belmont Day student is... imminently capable and kind.

Things I love about Belmont Day are... the incredible warmth of the entire community; the remarkable faculty and their enthusiasm; the kindness and authenticity of the students; and the tremendous opportunity the future holds for BDS.
