A 1977 graduate of Dartmouth College, Wood earned a bachelor's degree in geology and mathematics. He earned four letters as a member of the school's men's tennis team and won the 1974 ECAC C Division championship.

He held numerous New England junior rankings and was ranked among the top five in singles and No. 1 in doubles in New England. He continues to play in USTA Tournaments where he is currently ranked No. 1 in New England in men's over-45 doubles division.

After college Wood moved to New York City where he was an investment banker with Morgan Stanley. He then moved to Hanover N.H., and started an investment advisory firm and after selling it moved to Jamestown in 1998.

At Saint George's he has coached both women's tennis and women's squash. Wood inherited a team that had finished 4-10 in 2000, but turned the program around, helping the team improve each year, including a 10-5-1 mark in 2004. Following the same pattern of turning programs around, the URI team he inherited had a record of 4-16 while last years team (2005-6) improved to 16-5 due to talented recruits and hard work.

Wood resides in Jamestown, R.I. with his wife, Bambi. The couple has two children, Brooke and Todd, who both attend Dartmouth where they compete in ski racing and squash, respectively.
