I was born and raised in Northampton, Massachusetts. After graduating high school, I attended a local community college for one year before moving to Virginia to attend a different university in the fall of 2005. In 2009, I moved to South Korea to complete my internship and graduated in 2010 with a degree in Intercultural Studies.
More importantly, I met my wonderful wife while in South Korea. We have been married since 2011 and are planning to move back to Virginia in the spring of 2013.
