What are you hoping to accomplish and or offer to GSAC?

I would like to create a positive impact by offering ideas to the GSAC that help increase the number of available resources and events for graduate students.

What are three expectations that you have of this council? 

1. I expect members of the council to consider student requests and concerns.

2. I expect members of the council to be supportive of new ideas.

3. I expect the council to generate events that students find helpful and interesting.

How do you plan to represent graduate students on GSAC? 

I hope to represent graduate students on the GSAC by addressing any concerns while promoting participation in community events. I hope to add to their experience at the university by helping them learn valuable skills to advance their careers.

What led to your decision to become a graduate student at Valpo? 

Valparaiso University offers a well-organized program that focuses on technical skill and methodology. The ability to attend class remotely in a supportive community allowed me to dive into the cyber security objectives.

What is one interesting fact about yourself?

I spend winter months snowboarding and building custom computer rigs. I built two computers last winter to stay busy on the cold days.

What is your favorite food? 

I enjoy kicking back in the summer and preparing great food to toss on the grill. Marinated veggies and meat top my list of favorites. I love to explore the restaurants in Valpo and check out live music performances too!
