Notables: Phi Beta Kappa member and Summa Cum Laude graduate from Rutgers University (B.S. Physics & Ed.M. Physics Education). Team coach for 2011 first-place winners of Toshiba-NSTA ExploraVision competition.

Leif decided to be an educator during at year off from his undergraduate work. He lived in Saint Kitts and Nevis, West Indies, where his volunteering included curriculum development for Ministry of Education.
