Hometown: Bloomington, IN

Favorite spot on campus: In college, my favorite spot was the math department because of the close-knit community and collective passion for solving problems. I truly built my home there!

Little-known fact about me: I became a juggler in college and have been to multiple International Juggling Festivals.

Piece of advice for students in the college search process: Think about the feeling that you have as you visit each college. Take that feeling home with you and consider it as you make your college decision. I chose Lewis & Clark for many academic and co-curricular reasons, but my final decision was based on the fact that I truly felt at home here. 

Favorite place to spend time in Portland: Voicebox Karaoke! I am known to be singing most of the time, and Voicebox is the best place to sing my heart out. 

If I was stranded on a desert island, I would want these three things: My wife and two cats, Fred and Percy. 

If I didn’t work in Admissions, I would be: There’s no question that I would be a yoga teacher! I am so grateful for my yoga practice and the strength, peace, and intention it has brought to my life.
