Things I am good at...

  • I enjoy applying the practical side of all that I learn as well as taking opportunities for sharing my knowledge. Over time, I've gotten better at drawing on my strengths, asking for help when I need it, and at empowering others to access resources in the learning process. I am also a dad, dog-owner, and triathlete--though still a novice at two of the three!

Expertise that I have acquired in my life and career that I bring to my term of service on the SCU Alumni Board

  • I am an entrepreneur with a background in education. Over the course of my education and professional development, I've developed a keen interest in management and training. I am a systems thinker and rely on logic as well as human-centered design concepts to solve real-world problems. I strive to be empathetic in all of my relationships and have developed an ability to lead teams and projects across time, space, and shifting circumstances.
