I am an Apple Distinguished Educator (ADE Class of 2015) , National Board Certified Teacher, Keystone Technology Integrator, and the 2016 PBS Lead Digital Innovator for Pennsylvania.  I am currently employed as an 8th Grade American History teacher at North Hills Middle School within the North Hills School District near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  At North Hills, I also serve as a technology trainer, collaborating with colleagues to foster educational technology integration and student engagement across the district.  I have presented at several educational technology conferences, including PETE&C, the Allegheny Intermediate Unit’s Learning Together Conference, Digital Learning Days, Center for Creativity STEAM Showcase, PMLE Annual Conference, and the Pennsylvania School Board Association Conference. I live in Scott Township with my wife, Sarah, and children, Julia and Noah.
