How did you end up at Westmont? Through my work in student development, I kept hearing such great things about Westmont’s programs and I consistently enjoyed the students and staff I met who were connected to the institution. While searching for my next opportunity to serve in higher education, Westmont was at the top of the list, and I am thrilled to join such an incredible team and community.
Favorite thing about Westmont? So far, I enjoy learning the culture that is both excellent and relaxed, where community members are driven and amiable, effective and kind.
Favorite college memory? Sharing a house my senior year with three of my best friends, riding my bike to campus, arguing over dish duty, being challenged in my cultural presumptions, and watching hours of The Office when I needed a break from Kinesiology homework.
Favorite book in your library? Top three: On the Incarnation, Saint Athanasius; Till We Have Faces, C.S. Lewis; Good Poems, compiled by Garrison Keillor
What makes you cry? Listening to Spiegel im Spiegel by Arvo Pärt. It gets me every time.
What is your favorite thing to do away from Westmont? I love to ride my bike or take walks on the beach with my wife, Kasey, and our puppy, Athan. And of course, returning home to New York–and if I can ski while I'm there, then all the better!
