As the Director of UNC Campus Recreation I am responsible for the administration and management of the student recreation center, campus recreation events, fitness and wellness programs, intramural sports, club sports, outdoor pursuits, and student leadership. I also strive for continued development of an inclusive and equitable culture for all members and patrons. I joined UNC Campus Rec in November of 2017 and it has been my privilege to become a member of such a professional, hard-working, and passionate team; as well as to work in an outstanding facility.
I have been a part of the UNC community for 14 years. I have served in many capacities here as an undergraduate, graduate, and professional staff member. I graduated with a BA in Social Science in 2003, an MA in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies in 2009, and a Ph.D. in Higher Education and Student Affairs Leadership in 2014. UNC is a second home to me and I could not be a prouder alum. I have seen UNC grow and thrive during my time here, and look forward to seeing it continue to become an increasingly competitive institution that consistently produces premier graduates.
I am an incredibly proud father of three children ranging in age from 5 months to 6 years old. They keep my wife and me incredibly busy with sports, dance, and school events. We also like to watch superhero movies (especially Guardians of the Galaxy), read new books, and generally goof off any chance we get.
