Technology drives the world we live in.  A career in higher education allows me to work alongside a diverse group of people on a wide range of projects that aims to increase our students’ access to technological tools and resources necessary to further their education, and help them contribute to society.

What do you hope students gain from SFA?

I hope students discover their passions, gain a deeper understanding of the world around them and begin to identify ways they can make an impact in the world.

I enjoy spending time with my family and engaging in many of the outdoor pursuits available here in East Texas.
