About Me:

I am originally from just outside Atlanta, GA where I spent most of my childhood before moving to Memphis, then Birmingham and now Huntsville. As the admissions representative for North Alabama and Tennessee I thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to work with students as they go through a very important time in their lives. I have been involved in Admissions for 3 years, but have never been in a position where I can be as close to my students as I am now.  It brings me immense joy to see students go through this process and come out with what they believe is right for them, this is important for the student's personal development and growth.

When I'm not working with students, I enjoy spending time with my lovely wife and daughter. I'm an avid Atlanta Falcons fan (although I certainly don't mind watching the Jags on Saturdays!) and spend my time browsing Reddit, meeting people, working out and playing Madden!


B.A. - Communication Studies
University of Alabama at Birmingham


Movie: Rush Hour 2 will forever remain one of my favorite movies and I'm not sure why. Probably because it takes a lot for me to feel like watching a movie!

Music: I grew up Motown and old school R&B but a huge fan of Rap too: OutKast, Open Mike Eagle, etc. I'll pretty much listen to anything though, if it catches my ear, it's on my playlist.

Things to do in Mobile: I have to go downtown any time I'm in town. So much to do, specifically, so much to eat, and I love food.

Books:  Whatever I can get my hands on, particularly Communications, culture or sports related

Place on campus: There's a green area outside of Meisler Hall and the Student Center that I feel is VERY relaxing. I like sitting near that Alpha Phi Alpha bench in particular.... it's a pretty nice and Ice Cold!
