I enjoy spending time with my wife watching TV shows on Netflix.  Every change I get I love going on long bike rides.  One game that I love to play is ultimate Frisbee and in my free time I love to build things.

Why do you like EKU?

I don’t just like EKU, I love EKU because of the care they showed me while I was a student and the opportunities it gave me to become a leader. Secondly because of the beautiful campus.

Why do you like working in EKU Housing?

Because they give me a wonderful environment to work in. I get challenged every day to be the best professional possible.

What do you want students to know about you?

That I care about each and every one of their success her at EKU. I want them to know that I am approachable and I want to get to know each and every one of their names and their stories.

Give a piece of best advice for students.

To get involved. There are many different opportunities on campus for students to become active and I recommend that they find one that suits their interests.
