What brought you to Gordon?
I had the opportunity to study at Gordon while visiting as a Consortium student from Westmont. It was the best year of my college experience, which included meeting my wife, Trish. After I graduated and we got married, we moved to this area to attend seminary. Trish served as an RD at Gordon for three years and we have loved being a part of this community ever since.

What is your favorite part about working in Residence Life?
Developing relationships with students and seeing God at work in their lives.

What is your favorite thing about Gordon?
Being a part of a community committed to Christ and students' growth and education. It is such a gift to live and work here!

What do you enjoy doing during your free time?
I love to spend time with my wife and our four children. I also enjoy photography, making films, and writing and playing music.

What is your favorite college memory?
Two come to mind.  During my junior year at Gordon a group of friends and I went camping and hiked Mt. Washington in New Hampshire. After we got to the top of Mt. Washington we raced along the ridge to some of the other peaks—it was so fun! The other memory has to be the Homecoming weekend when I proposed to Trish. I'll save that story to share over coffee (drop by my office in Student Life in Lane).

What is your favorite hall event?
My favorite hall event... that's tough to choose from the past nine years! I am a fan of a lot of our annual cookouts but my favorite event was probably Field Day. There's something very nostalgic about competing against other teams in the 50-yard dash, relay races and balloon toss!
