Bio

God has blessed me with a wonderful wife, Jennifer and two children, daughter Emily and son Grady – all three of which make me a better person each day.

Interesting Fact about me:

I have found several ways to cause significant injuries to myself by hitting trees. To date, I’ve managed to recover from all of them including a broken bone in my neck from literally flying head first into a tree after being thrown off a mountain bike. I was wearing a helmet and it probably saved my life. Other modes of significant tree injuries include snow sledding head first into a tree and literally just running into a tree. My wife wants me to wear a helmet permanently.

I love working in Campus Recreation because of the students and staff that it is my privilege to work for and with (past and present).
