What brought you to Brookdale?
After approximately ten years of working on and off Wall Street as a securities trader, I started to think about careers in education. My original plan was to teach math at an urban school. Somewhere along the way, I found Brookdale. Brookdale is a perfect match for me. I get to teach recent high school graduates, returning veterans, and mature students looking for a second chance at education. The campus is beautiful, and the faculty is top-notch.

Do you work outside of the college?
I work for Southern New Hampshire University where I facilitate a three-week training program for new adjunct faculty. I also teach statistics online. and I co-own a microbrewery in New Brunswick NJ.

What do you think separates Brookdale from other colleges?
Brookdale faculty are focused on helping students succeed! Everything we do at Brookdale is student-centered. There is a sense of community and family on campus.

Brookdale has something for everyone; try a class with us!
