Department: Undergraduate Admissions

I am originally from Suburban Philadelphia from a township called Cheltenham. I grew up with cheesesteaks, pretzels, Reading Terminal, and South St. I attended Shippensburg University in Shippensburg, PA and received a B.A. in Political Science and a concentration in International Studies. I have been working in Higher Education for 8 years. I moved to this area to pursue a career in higher education and currently live with my wife and our dog in the metro west area outside of Boston.

Fun fact:
In 2010 my sister, dog, and I traveled cross-country by car to go to a taping of Conan.  

Favorite vacation spot: The Poconos in Pennsylvania  

Favorite place in Boston: One place that I like to go is the North End, mostly because of the cannolis. (I like Mike's, and the line is worth it.)  

Why Lasell? It has a strong sense of community. It has a lot of History and opportunities to be a part of the growth. The educational opportunities are awesome as well with guaranteed internships and Connected Learning Method; it makes me want to go back to school.
