After earning my B.A. from the University of Michigan-Flint, I entered the Student Affairs profession.

In my spare time I blog about my thoughts and musings on current issues in higher education, student affairs, web 2.0, LGBT issues and general life inspirations and observations. I also volunteer for Kappa Sigma Fraternity.
