He is known for an elevated level of energy and innovation he brings to all facets of his school and community.

During the selection process, the Teacher of the Year Committee recognized his creativity in planning, writing and implementing new curriculum, and the positive and appropriate relationships he establishes with students.

He is heavily involved with the Youth Vote initiative at EHS, organizing the local Board of Education and Town Council debates and assemblies. He is a founding and active member of the Diversity Task Force/Club at Enfield High School.
