Assistant Director, Undergraduate Advising Center at The University of Kansas

Preferred Pronouns: He/His/Him

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 coordinate 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 a 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 superheroes. I'm a huge Marvel and DC fan, so if you ever want to talk about the MCU, comics, etc, I would love to chat about it!

Finally, I love being a father! I have an amazing partner and together we've been blessed with two amazing, spunky daughters so they keep me very busy outside of work life.

Since we live in some wild times right now, I think it's appropriate to talk about what I do while working from home. My favorite quarantine activity right now is to play hide and seek with my kids. Sometimes during my breaks from work, we'll play a quick game. They are not very good at it and laugh whenever I am looking for them. It's fun!

Series I've watched for the first time while in Quarantine: Community, Bob's Burgers, and Ozark.
