I’m originally from Pittsburgh, PA, so of course I’m a huge Steelers fan. I earned my undergraduate degree in anthropology and my graduate degree in higher education. After some hopping around the country, I’ve settled into the South Park area of San Diego where I currently live with my wife, my son Luke and my two dogs and cats. It’s a little zany but we make it work!

My favorite thing about San Diego is that you can do everything outside. Back in my former life, I used to work as a park ranger and there are so many opportunities to enjoy nature in Southern California. I love going to the dog beach and Balboa Park or taking day trips to some amazing state and national parks. It’s still a little strange for me coming from the East Coast and adjusting to places being much closer than they used to be.

I really enjoy working with students to help them make the right decisions about their future and showing them everything that NewSchool has to offer. We are in an exciting part of downtown San Diego and things are constantly changing all the time. I look forward to helping you through the admissions process and answering any other questions that you might have.
