About Me: I’m originally from Chicago, where I grew up with two younger brothers. I’ve been an academic advisor, a campus minister, and a high school teacher. When I'm not hanging out at home with my dog Killian, I like to be off traveling the world. My best trip ever was a 500-mile walk across Spain in 2011, on the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. Feel free to ask to see pictures!
Favorite Spot On Campus: It’s really hard to beat the Horseshoe
Length of Time at USC: Since January, 2012
Favorite Gamecock Moment/Best Part about being a Gamecock: I’m pretty fond of the day I walked out of my office after work and straight into a Hootie concert on the Horseshoe!
