I am a native Floridian but have traveled the world three times. As a young man, I got a chance to view the world and have diverse cultural experiences and a deep connection with nature. Since my very first plane ride to Hawaii, I have lived in and visited Panama, South Carolina, Germany, South Korea, Iraq, Egypt, Texas, Italy, France, Romania and New York, to name a few. Some of them more than once.
I am always fascinated by diverse cultures and learning about their history. Upon my visit to Dachau, Germany, I realized that I wanted to become a member of the Armed Forces and protect our nation and others around the world. I served for over 20 years and have had the chance to work in many leadership positions.
I am a proud graduate of The Evergreen State College and worked in the Office of Admissions for six years as an admissions counselor to recruit new evening, weekend and veteran students. In 2022 I joined the Academic and Career Advising team. I am extremely excited to serve in my academic and career advisor role and hope to help students find their academic path and career. Like I tell my children, if you find something you love, you will never work a day in your life. I have loved every moment of my journey and hope to find the same for our amazing students here at Evergreen.
