I began working at LeTourneau University in 2005. For the first four years, I served as the Resident Director of Pennsylvania Hall, Mabee Hall and the Quad (Durham House, Carpenter House, Howe House and McKinley House). Currently, I am the Resident Director for the Village Apartments (single traditional students) and the Family and Married Student Apartments (Traditional or Graduate students with a family). I also serve as the Coordinator of Housing, as I oversee housing and the ResHall facilities across campus.
Working at LeTourneau has been a bit of a homecoming for me. I graduated from LETU in 2003 with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics. From there I went to Baylor University and earned my Master of Science in Education, concentrating in Student Services Administration. In October of 2005, my wife Katie and I were married in her hometown in Wisconsin. We met here at LETU as students. I grew up in Baltimore, Maryland, for the first half of my childhood, then in Houston after my family moved to Texas.
One of the things that I love about working in residence life is that things are always new. Every year we get a new group of students who join our ranks that generally have no idea what life at LETU is all about. It is a fun process of welcoming those new students into our fold as they begin and continue to learn about life at college and life with our God. It is a privilege that I have the opportunity to walk with and work with students in this formative time of their lives; but it is also sad on graduation day, as it is but a few years that we get to spend with each student.
My wife and I like to travel. We love going to new places and seeing the hidden corners of the world. We love to cook and to try new foods. We have a baby girl, and life has been very different since her arrival! We love the mountains (Katie likes the Rockies; I like the Smokies) and to hike and explore.
