Pronouns: He/Him/His

As the Assistant Director for Residential Education, I supervise and oversee all aspects of recruitment and training of the Community Directors and Resident Advisors. We work together to create a holistic co-curricular residential experience to develop a sense of community on campus. My goal as a professional is to provide students with an on-campus housing experience that will not only be memorable, but also help them to develop life skills that will benefit them beyond WPI.  

Prior to coming to WPI, I worked at several other institutions across the East Coast. I received my Master of Science in Higher Education from Syracuse University, and I am a graduate of the University Honors College at Southern Connecticut State University where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing. When I am not working, I am likely spending time with friends and family and watching my favorite reality shows.
