Tacoma, WA

I am a Pittsburgher (see: yinzer) transplanted to Tacoma, WA to serve as Career Development Specialist for the University of Washington Tacoma.

My Christian faith drives everything in my life, such as my desire for community, conversations about the future of higher education, and the path that led me very far from home.

I love all Pittsburgh sports (Pirates, Penguins, Steelers) as well as thoughtful music. Currently, I play drums for a two-piece indie rock band, Michelle from the Club.

Likes: Pittsburgh sports, music with substance, thoughtful inquiry
