Why I Do What I Do:

My passion is to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need today so that they are mobilized to be effective leaders of tomorrow.


Success, in my opinion, is not about graduating magna cum laude, earning six figures, or even about doing what makes you happy. While there’s nothing inherently wrong with those measures of success, they are not what’s really going to matter in fifty years. To me, success is measured in the difference I make today in the lives of those around me and in the legacy I leave behind. Every day is truly a gift. It’s our responsibility to invest into others and make the most of each day we’ve been given.

Prior to coming to UCA, he served as the Program Coordinator of an Intensive Academic English Program at the University of California, Berkeley in Berkeley, California.
