Three Fun Facts:

  1. I'm the oldest of three siblings/brothers.
  2. I traveled around the world on a ship over the span of 4 months as student with "Semester At Sea".
  3. I collected baseball cards as a kid and attended Game 2 of the 2002 Word Series.

Top 5 Strengths from StrengthsQuest:

  • Connectedness - I have faith in the links among all things
  • Empathy - I sense others' emotions
  • Adaptability - I move forward through chaos
  • Context - I look to the past to understand the present
  • Strategic - I create alternative ways to proceed

What is one thing you wish you knew about college before you started as a student?

Really take the time to explore your interests, personality, and strengths. And join at least one student club - you'll feel more connected to the campus and create potential friends for a lifetime.

What do you like to do when you're not working?

Road trips (especially if I am not the one driving); learning the beautiful Spanish language; researching tech gadgets; and encouraging my 3 children to love others and themselves.

Favorite Quote: “Your vocation in life is where your greatest joy meets the world's greatest need.” - Frederick Buechner


I'm a first-gen college graduate with a passion for supporting students to discover their purpose. Born and raised in southern California, I miss year-round sun and beaches with sand - yet I admire the beauty of the Pacific Northwest and the students of Green River College. Be sure to ask me about my four-month voyage across the globe and I will be eager to share some amazing adventures. And may your time at Green River be the same, that is, an amazing journey of learning and new opportunities!
