I serve as Vice President for Student Life and Dean of Students at a university in Portland, Oregon and am completing a PhD in Higher Education and Organizational Leadership. This blog is a place to think through the future of higher education and what it means to lead, cultivate change, and build environments where people connect and grow.

I enjoy hiking, buying more books than I can actually read, and finding new adventures with my wife and 3 kids. I am currently on a quest to create the perfect chili and cheesecake (separately – not together).
