If you are reading this, you're here! Yay.
I have been a teacher since 1996, when I started my teaching career fresh out of Peabody College at Vanderbilt University. Before that, I had worked for years in the food service industry as restaurant manager for Williams Island in North Miami Beach and here in Nashville, at the Slice of Life Restaurant and Bakery, and at Ruby Tuesday. Before that I made my living mostly by playing music, starting in Alaska, then in Los Gatos, California, and on cruise ships in the Caribbean Sea.
I have taught at Dodson Elementary School, University School of Nashville; and most recently, since 2010, I helped create and implement and I taught online at MNPS Virtual School. I was also a primary support for students, teachers, and families at Virtual School. My work there being done, I am extremely excited to begin building a 21st century curriculum for your children.
I have a lovely wife, Lee Ann, of nearly 30 years, who created, co-owns and operates Tinwings, a fresh food catering and grab-and-go business in The Nations; and I'm blessed with two grown children, Miranda Buell--who works at Nashville's Room in the Inn--and Colin, who is a rising rock star and who works two jobs to help support his efforts in that realm. A tip of the hat, too, to son-in-law Timothy Buell, who is a professional drummer and has his own website related to his work at http://timbuell.net.
We have two dogs and a cat. This week, Ruby says hi:

That's it in a nutshell, and enough for now. Stay tuned!
