As a regional counselor, I have the great pleasure of working with and getting to know students from Michigan, North Dakota, New York, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Wisconsin and West Virginia.
Although I was born in Missouri, Pennsylvania has always been my home. I currently live in Carlisle with my wife and three children along with my dog, Rocko, and cat, Tito. I grew up in a very small town, and one of the pieces I thought I would lose when moving to Carlisle was the sense of a close-knit community. However, having lived in Carlisle for the past eight years, one of the most important things I’ve come to realize is the sense of a strong and supportive community, which is reflected by Dickinson as well.
Aside from the community, I was drawn to work at Dickinson because of the college's dedication to a rigorous and practical education. Having been a teacher prior to working at Dickinson, education is a priority for me, and I believe Dickinson provides one of the best curricula for college students. In addition, Dickinson is a leader in sustainable and global education, which means students are challenged to think about the greater questions that they will carry with them forever as lifelong learners.
When not in the office I love cycling around the beautiful Pennsylvania countryside.
Before I settled on education I achieved my private pilot’s license in hopes that I would fly for a living. Turns out things change!
A hidden secret (not even my colleagues know) is that I love creating videos! Casey Neistat, Peter McKinnon, Dan Mace and Jon B. are big inspirations for me.
Find me locally: At any one of the fantastic Carlisle eateries (especially Molly Pitcher Brewing).
I wish you could find me: Riding historic Alpe d’Huez, France.
All the best,
Assistant Director of Admissions
