About Me

I was born the oldest of seven children (six boys and one girl). I received my undergraduate degree in 2008 from Northern Kentucky University. I majored in Organizational Leadership. The support and mentoring that I received on that journey inspired me to pursue a career in higher education. I moved to Colorado in 2014 and while playing in the mountains managed to meet my wife and now we have two children. In 2018, I received my Master of Arts in Higher Education Administration & Leadership. I am grateful to be part of what is happening at CMU and assist future Mavs on their path to greatness.

Favorite Thing About Grand Junction 

The sense of community within Grand Junction makes even the newest members of the area feel welcome. The Grand Valley is home to some amazing local restaurantssome of my favorites include Dream Cafe, The Hot Tomato, Rockslide and Bin 707. My favorite part of Grand Junction is the amount of outdoor recreational opportunities that are within a short distance! From rock climbing to hiking to paddle boarding on the Colorado River, there's something for everyone here. This area of Colorado is special in so many different ways and is a great place to call home away from home!
