Pronouns: He/Him

I love working with students and supporting them during their every stage of their career journey.

My Career Journey

I attended Christopher Newport University for undergrad. I switched my major and career path several times. I thought I wanted to be an English teacher, journalist, or lawyer. I graduated with a degree in Communication Studies. During my undergrad experience, I was very involved on campus in a number of different leadership positions. That led me to pursue a masters degree in higher education administration at Oregon State University. My job search after grad school led me to JMU and I have been here since 2016! I have previously worked in the Office of Residence Life and the Office of Student Accountability and Restorative Practices.
