In my role I work to build bridges and connections. My goal is that each of our students has the opportunity to meet with and learn from our incredible alumni and that our alumni are easily able to stay meaningfully engaged with and connected to the school. In effort to accomplish that lofty goal I hope to bring alumni back to campus frequently and celebrate when they’re here. I hope to create really interesting and life changing immersion programs for our students to discover themselves. And I want to help both students and alums navigate their resources here.


I’m a HUGE Syracuse fan and bring a lot of that fan energy and enthusiasm to my work at the iSchool. In my spare time I serve the role as Coach of Syracuse University’s mascot program, Otto the Orange. Otto frequently finds himself in the iSchool, so be on the lookout.


I teach a 1 credit transfer orientation seminar each semester for new students.
