Assistant Director, Undergraduate Advising Center at The University of Kansas


My Top 5 strengths are Includer, Adaptability, Empathy, Positivity, Harmony.

Born and raised in Topeka, KS. I grew up loving the Kansas Jayhawks! I love college sports, especially football and basketball, specifically #kubball and #kufball.

I currently serve as an Assistant Director in the Undergraduate Advising Center at KU. I am in charge of the Peer Advisor program. I was a Peer Advisor during my undergraduate years at KU which jumpstarted my career in Higher Education, so it's great to be coming back to where it all started for me.

I am a movie buff. I love watching movies and can pretty much have conversation in movie quotes. I also love to listen to music! I used to be a DJ, so I listen to all kinds of music. I love volunteering for an incredible organization called Hugh O'Brian Youth (HOBY) Leadership. Finally, I love being a father! I have an amazing partner and together we've been blessed with two amazing, spunky daughters (toddlers) so they keep me very busy outside of work life.

My superhero power would be to fly or have superhuman strength. I'm also a huge Batman fan!
