Best memories from your Valpo days:  

I have a lot of great memories after attending Valpo for 5 years! I met my beautiful wife my freshman year. I played on the men’s basketball team and won 4 championships, making the NCAA tournament twice.

Some of my best memories were just being involved in and around the university. Also through Valparaiso International Student Association (VISA), I was able to showcase the many aspects of my culture and learn about other cultures through the different activities they hosted.

Since leaving Valpo, I played basketball professionally, until I retired from Basketball in September 2019. Now I am working in Economic Development. Currently the Community Development Specialist for the city of Texarkana, Texas.
