  • Babysitting Barter
    Founder & CEO, 2009 - present
    Founded www.babysittingbarter.com Fairly sure that one of my first two employees was a large misake.
  • Great Neck South Middle School
    Technology Evangelist, Technology Staff Developer, Social Studies Teacher, 2000 - present
    An amazing institution where the Assistant Superintendent wrote my letter of resignation with no union representation, after being a nationally award-winning teacher for 14 years in the Great Neck Schools where on the first day of school, after not getting much sleep the night before as my Department Chair at 11:20 p.m. the night before the first day of school, said that my lesson plan on Federalism was not fit for a high school due to the fact that my department chair emailed me at 11:20 p.m. the night before and said my lesson on Federalism was not fit for a High School classroom. As the A.S. was writing my letter of resignation, in a scene seemingly straight out of the movie American Beauty, he asked me if I had had a sexual identity change during my sabbatical. I said no, I didn't believe so, but was certainly curious why he asked me that while writing my letter of resignation.

Story
Tagline
Looking to change the world and hoping for help doing so.
Introduction
Innovation, exhilaration and education.  I am a Technology Staff Developer, a social studies teacher, an entrepreneur and a father who wants to change the way we think about our local and global solutions to the challenges that we are faced with in the 21st Century.

As President and CEO of BabysittingBarter.com, I am seeking to revolutionize the way Moms, Dads and caregivers across the country do babysitting. 

As a social studies teacher, I have piloted "How Could War Look Different?" an online template for classrooms around the world to collaborate re-enact and re-examine the wars of our past.  I have also championed the Akidemy Awards at Great Neck South Middle School on Long Island, where students create mini-documentaries answering the question "What is the greatest challenge facing the United States today?"

As an educator, I have brought together over 60 middle and high schools and 500 students and teachers on Long Island to participate in a Pay It Forward Conference in order to spread the message of kindness.

In 2010, I was named Tech & Learning's Educator Leader of the Year for my work in the classroom and designing and implementing "The Connected Classroom" where I was able to secure funding to bring 1 to 1 netbooks and 1 to 2 Ipod Touches to my team.

I am a Flat Classroom Certified teacher and have recently set my sights on re-inventing the concept of a textbook, moving toward a flipped model where students can engage in an Interactive Textbook Ecosystem where student learning and assignments are geared toward student learning styles and where content can be created and discussed in real time with other students around the world.
Bragging rights
2010 Tech & Learning Educator Leader of the Year, father of four beautiful children, never mistaken for someone who thinks normally.

The remarkable can sometimes be lost in a sea of clutter and overlooked as a bedrock is often overlooked in the rubble. The Garden City Hotel knows nothing of the rubble and sits atop a peak of Garden City history that has a long view, an opulent past, and a future that looks bright while waking up and seeing the sun rise in this beautiful upscale hotel that is surprisingly affordable. Standing at the center of one of the most beautiful and vibrant suburbs on Long Island, the Garden City Hotel offers a wonderful array of services with the emphasis always being on service. The staff at the hotel, from the front door man, to the desk clerk, to the waiters and wait staff to the guy at the hotel store, those who work at the Garden City Hotel are genuine people who seek to make your stay a little more pleasurable at every turn. In addition to the service at the hotel, the premises themselves are absolutely spectacular, featuring a wonderful piano filled restaurant, a more upscale dining area and a nightclub that will turn even the most frigid dancer into a virtual Fred Astaire. The food is spectacular as is the wine selection and the rooms are incredibly comfortable with bathrooms that make you never want to leave. Overall, if you are staying in Long Island, and you want the best, at an amazingly affordable price compared with even the cheapest hotels on Long Island, you would be doing yourself a disservice if you didn't spend at least one night at this Garden City institution, the Garden City hotel.

The Village of Mineola serves it's people with a wide variety of services, parks, schools, busses, a train and local fare that anyone who's never been to Long Island should not miss. Pubs of note: The St. James, Eleanor Rigby, Caroll's Recovery Room, The Heart of Portugal, the Double H Pub, the Cornerstone and a host of other friendly places, serve this mixed language community well. Bodegas litter the streets, welcoming bi-linguists, Spanish and Portuguese speaking residents and those who speak only English. The community is filled with a number of Churches as well as the Nassau County headquarters of The Red Cross. Local fire department located across from Village Hall serves the community with pride. New condos threated the fabric of what Mineola always was, with the hope that integration with a more wealthy, urban vibe will integrate well with the existing community. As the historic Citibank building faces abolition and new Condos are ready to be raised, one can only wonder if Mineola is sitting at a crossroads, much as Long Island is as she grows more crowded and has to deal with rising taxes and diminished services for its community. Mineola, if anything, has always been filled with fighters, with people who will not let go, who know what's important and who, if they must, will bend with the times. Don't expect this community to break, however. At the heart of Nassau County, the Village of Mineola represents the very best of Long Island's spirit of togetherness, of grit and of a determination that the best days are yet to come, while never forgetting those that have gone by. It's only a few stops by train from just about anywhere in New York State. Might be a place to visit, or perhaps to get a second place for those who never dreamed of having a second place. With it being 70 degrees on Christmas Day on Long Island, it might just be the next "summer" community. Either way, Mineola is a must see for anyone visiting Long Island.

Great classic American dive bar-ish place with a friendly staff, a juke box and a pool table. Really, in the end, what more could you want?

The perfect blend of sustainability, fine cuisine, and unwinding. Seasons 52 offers a local, organic menu that cannot be matched and their wines are divine. Loss of the piano player hurts them, but they weren't that great anyway, so maybe not. A harpist or a sax player would go a long way, but this place hits the nail on the head even without live music. Definitely a place to experience.

Beautiful upscale Irish bar/restaurant who serves live music with a side of local-ness to insure that this place remains in the lore of Port Washington.

If you are into showing your wealth and your arrogance, then this jewel in the heart of Garden City is your bird. If you believe that every one should be treated equally, then this might not be the deliscious bar or wonderful fine dining that you seek. Waterzooi is everything that Garden City is and everything that you expect from a wealthy town's intimate bar/restaurant with the lighting dimmed just right. The food is spectacular as are the drinks and certainly the looks of the patrons. However, the staff does not make outsiders feel at home with their impatient acknowledgements of your existence unless you are wearing a $500 suite or are clearly a yuppie suburbanite or someone visiting from Manhattan.

Very fancy, very expensive, very nice. If you have a special occasion, then this is the place for you. If you have tons of disposable money, then this is the place for you. If you are making less than $200K a year, this is probably not the place for you. Sad how dive bars seem to invite anyone, including the rich, but really, really nice high end bars, make those without money feel unwelcome, no matter how hard they try. The Capital Grille is a beautifully decorated "city bar/restaurant" that prides themselves on their service and their food. They should stand by it because it is spectacular.
