After graduating with my Bachelor’s from Whitworth University, I took on an assortment of jobs loosely connected with my Literature major. I landscaped the grounds of a castle in Austria, remodeled million dollar homes in Castle Rock, CO, wrote grant proposals for a Seattle non-profit, helped found an organization that combats contemporary slavery in India, and lived the early life of a Starbucks barista. These experiences lent themselves to fantastic material for my MFA degree in poetry, which I wrapped up in 2013. Now as an Advisor at CU, I’m excited to hear about the possibilities ahead of students and help develop the abilities to get them there. I currently live in Lafayette with my spouse, Jenny, and our rambunctious dog Sebastian, spending my down time hiking, skiing, reading, catching up on some new TV serial, and writing enough to try and finish that first book.
