My homeschooling journey began in junior high, largely at my own behest. It was certainly a learning experience, but one that presented many new opportunities for my future. Homeschooling offered me a more creative, flexible education environment, enabling me to participate in unique volunteer activities and internships, start my own business, explore various career paths, and more.
Perhaps some of the key benefits, which might be counter intuitive to some, are that homeschooling helped me become more well-rounded, engage with a diversity of people and generations and gave me a taste of what it is like to grapple with real-world responsibilities. Homeschooling is not for everyone. But if students and parents approach it with an outward-looking perspective, one that encourages growth and diligence, they can have great success.
After high school, I received a Bachelor of Science in Finance from the University of South Florida and a Juris Doctor from the UNH Franklin Pierce School of Law. I now work for The Concord Coalition, a nonpartisan organization that educates on the importance of generationally-responsible federal fiscal policy, as their New England Regional Director. I also host Concord's weekly radio show and podcast, and this year, I will have the honor of interviewing the presidential candidates. In addition, I write a column, and I am an adjunct professor for UNH Law School..
My wife, Meghan, and I live in New Hampshire and are active in our community. I serve on a variety of local government and organizational boards and committees, write a column for the local newspaper, and previously spent several years coaching with a local high school rowing team.
