Though he grew up not too far away in New Jersey, most of Jim’s adult life has been on the west coast, mostly in Seattle and more recently in the San Francisco Bay Area. In 2015 he and his wife realized a lifelong dream by moving to NYC and have been loving it ever since. During his first career, as an architect, Jim designed hotels, conference centers, and retail centers throughout the US and around the world. His work took him to fascinating locations like India, China, and Saudi Arabia. As an architect Jim used math every day to solve practical problems, and as a math teacher he helps students discover that math is relevant and connected to many areas of their lives.
When he is not teaching he enjoys scuba diving, biking around the city, and collecting world globes (he’s got over 60!). Jim has a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from the University of Washington and a Masters in Architecture from MIT. He is completing his Master of Science in Education degree at St. John’s University.
