I’m a proud GP alum, former resident student from Indiana, class of 1992! It’s an honor to be back assisting the Admissions team to inspire young men to want to become a member of the Georgetown Prep family. We work our tails off here, we love one another, and we share many, many laughs together! When I’m off campus you’ll find me on my front porch listening to the Black Crowes (it’s a band) with my lovely wife and smiling daughter. We are a family that loves to explore the West with fly rods over our shoulders, curious to know where we are going to set up the tent for the night. “Dream Big and Dare to Fail” - Norman Vaughan

I was born and raised in Princeton, NJ but have called the D.C. Metro area home since matriculating at Georgetown University in 2005, where I majored in English and played outfield for the baseball team. I have been employed in many different capacities at Prep since the moment I graduated from Georgetown, beginning as a baseball coach and dorm parent in 2009 (while still a Yankee fan at heart, I have also developed a dose of Natitude). I lived and coached at Prep for a year while I was a D.C. Teaching Fellow in D.C. Public Schools. I then found myself at Prep full-time not too long after, working in the Dean of Students Office and teaching English. I am now in my fifth year working in the Admissions Office while continuing to coach baseball and teach English and recently finishing a Masters from Johns Hopkins University. My favorite part of my job is beyond simple - the students, whether current or prospective. I relish the chance to meet a prospective student in 8th grade and then bear witness to his four years of growth at Prep. I love that I am encouraged and able to pursue my passions and hobbies here - literature and baseball - and be the lifelong learner I aspire to: Prep, and every other Jesuit institution, is marked by an extremely supportive and nurturing environment. HOYA SAXA!
