Schedule Appointment

I was born and raised in Central Oregon and now reside in Hillsboro with my lovely wife and two adorable sons. My personal interests include reading, writing, travel, home-roasting coffee, motorcycling, camping, learning new technology, plinking, and listening to a wide variety of music. 

I love working with people from a variety of backgrounds. My interest in all things international and intercultural led me to pursue a degree in international studies and a semester abroad in Egypt. I also began studying school psychology part time at George Fox in the fall of 2015.

What is your quest?

"To seek the Holy Grail ..." And to provide exceptional customer service to prospective students. Pursuing grad school is a very big decision. I strive to help students determine whether the Graduate School of Counseling at George Fox is the best fit for them. If you decide to apply, then I'll guide you through the application process.

What’s so awesome about George Fox University?

As an undergrad at Fox, I had several professors who challenged me academically and on a personal level. They didn’t just care about whether I showed up at class and turned in assignments; they were personally invested my my success and development as a student and as a follower of Christ. I see the same passion for mentoring and supporting students among faculty in the Graduate School of Counseling. In my opinion, this commitment to knowing students personally and challenging them daily is what makes George Fox University awesome.

What’s so awesome about Portland?

City life, Forest Park, amazing coffee (e.g. Stumptown), diversity, Saturday Market, slightly crazy bicyclists, hipsters, strange folks like the Unipiper, Powell’s City of Books, disc golf, Voodoo Doughnuts, Multnomah Falls, one hour from the beach, good public transportation, numerous employment opportunities, easy access to the great outdoors, and interesting (or simply weird) people.
