What made you want to go into higher ed and recruitment?
The chance to work with students and help them realize their life goals, and then being able to take that to a higher level and help institutions deliver on their objectives.
Did you have a favorite professor when you were in college?
My grad school advisor was also my favorite professor. His leadership philosophy was always front-and-center in all his classes. We were challenged to serve first, and to realize that our successes would be grounded on that initial overture to serve.
What does a typical Saturday look like for you?
You will find me with my beautiful wife and my two young children. I have a son who is three years old and a daughter who recently had her first birthday.
