He completed the two-year program in St. Louis, Missouri where he taught 4th and 5th graders at Woodward Elementary School.
Prior to joining Teach For America he served as an intern at a number of organizations including: a healthcare lobbying firm, a congressional campaign, and a foreign policy think tank.
