I was born and raised in the WNY area, graduating from Hamburg High School in 2006, where I was a member of the football, basketball, and baseball teams. I left the area for a brief period to go to college, earning a Bachelor’s degree in Physical Education from Baldwin-Wallace College in Berea, Ohio in 2010, where I was also a member of the football team. Directly following undergrad, I attended Canisius College from 2010-2011, earning my Master’s degree in Physical Education with a concentration in Health Education. I began teaching at St. Amelia School in December of 2013, and continue to teach Physical Education and act as the co-Director of Athletics for our sports programs. In addition, I coach a high school football and baseball team.
