The most exciting thing about working in the education field is…the opportunity to shape the process and content of education to become as meaningful as possible to young people.

The one profession I would like to try is…professional golf.

Currently in my CD changer: Béla Bartok, Broken Social Scene, BT, Imogen Heap, Radiohead and some working drafts of new songs I'm writing.

When I'm not at work, you can find me…working on my novel. It's a suspense story set in two locations: a music college in Boston and South Louisiana after a major hurricane.
