The groom’s mother retired as an English teacher and the supervisor of conflict mediation from Murry Bergtraum High School in Manhattan. His father is a sociologist who specializes in mass shootings. He previously taught at Rutgers and the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, and is the author of “Comprehending Columbine.”
The couple initially connected in 2014 on the dating website OkCupid. But after three canceled dates blamed on their busy work schedules, they never met in person. They matched again in April 2017 on the dating app JSwipe and finally met.
