I am a huge fan of professional cycling and English Premier League football (Go Spurs). I love reading, hiking in the GSMNP, and running. My wife and I are the proud owners of a somewhat heavyset cat named Panda.

I believe in educational models that empower students to take ownership of their education while providing them with the resources and tools to maximize their undergraduate experience. While I’m a firm believer that students need to develop as rigorous and critical thinkers, I also believe that experiential learning opportunities (service learning, study abroad, and internships) are essential ways for students to learn who they are and what issues matter to them in the world.
