About Me

I taught and coached cross country and track at Northern HS in Durham, NC. I've coached at the University of Richmond and Duke University in the 70s and 80s. I'm also a USATF Certified Level I and Level II (Endurance) Track Coach. After a year at St. Catherine's School in Richmond, VA, I returned to Durham in 2012 teaching and coaching at the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics.
