B.A. in History, The Ohio State University
M.A. in History, Ashland Theological Seminary
Current doctoral student in Educational Leadership at the University of Dayton

I was born and raised in the small town of DeGraff, Ohio and began my career in higher education at Ashland University, working in a student services position while in graduate school. After graduation, I was hired at the University of Dayton initially in financial aid, and have since transitioned to working in admission and financial aid and now new markets. I love working with students in a college environment--my college experience was fantastic and made me into the person I am today--and hope to work in higher education for the rest of my career! Outside of work I love watching sports (especially the Cincinnati Reds and Bengals!) and enjoying the outdoors with my lovely wife.

Why I Love UD

I love UD's approach to educate the whole person--forming students through both academic excellence and a commitment to fostering leadership and service skills. I truly believe that UD students are equipped both to excel in their vocations and make a positive mark in the world. UD is one amazing place!
