My self-summary
After a career as an engineer and entrepreneur in California, I started teaching Physics at a public school in San Francisco in 1995. I now live and teach in upper Manhattan, and enjoy my school, my students, and my work tremendously. I've started a Cross-Country running and Track & Field teams at my school which have become very successful. When I'm not working with students, I do a lot of photography. My subjects include sports, theater, and abstract compositions.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm trying to be a better friend, a better teacher, and a better coach. Along the way I hope to create some amazing photographs.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm taller than virtually anyone (6'6") so I don't notice height. Everyone's shorter than me! One year I dated two guys: one 6'4" and the other 5'2". So there you have it.

Although tall, I'm not heavily built but well proportioned. I do have mom's hips though.

I'm a daily runner/cyclist/swimmer, so I'm in good shape.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
