About Me: I served in the U.S. Air Force for over 24 years and love to travel. I am married and have two daughters. I’m thrilled to be at UofSC and to have the opportunity to assist students.
Favorite Quote: “Some men see things as they are, and ask why. I dream of things that never were, and ask why not.” - Robert F. Kennedy
Advice to Students: Study hard, very hard, but also take some time to enjoy all that UofSC and Columbia have to offer. You only get to have the college experience once, so make the most of it.
