Why I love working here:
Nothing is more exciting and fulfilling than helping my students plan and prepare for their futures. Being a Career Director at BYU allows me to do that through a combination of spiritual and secular learning unique to this institution. I think that’s the best way to help individuals see their divine worth and reach their full potential.

Quote I live by:
“We must develop the capacity to see men not as they are at present but as they may become.”
- President Thomas S. Monson

“Be curious, not judgmental."
- Walt Whitman

Advice for Students:
Many college students fail to utilize the beneficial resources available on campus. Using all of BYU’s student services can help you prepare for your future career, advance academically, and grow spiritually. Doing this will help you fulfill the promise found in D&C 38:30, “If ye are prepared, ye shall not fear.”

Favorite BYU Ice Cream Flavor:
It’s a tossup between Campfire Cookie and German Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream.

What I love doing when I’m not at work:
Outside the office, I strongly identify with Hobbits, enjoying nature, eating, and spending time with family and friends. I especially love playing basketball, mountain biking, hiking, traveling, and going on adventures with my wife.
