About MeI grew up in Ohio and both of my parents worked at a university, so it is only right that I've ended up working at UofSC. I have lived in South Carolina for most my life so this is the place I call home. You couldn't pay me to move back to a place with real winter weather. I'm married and have three kids. I love working at UofSC - it is such a great place with so many great people.
