About Me

Check out my About Me video right here —-> http://ksutube.kent.edu/playback.php?playthis=e3qn455f460

I wear many hats and somehow manage to keep everything balanced. I am a full-time graduate student at Kent State University working towards my master’s degree in public relations. I also work in the public relations department at WKSU, as the social media editor for the online news website www.KentWired.com, and for the Strayer University Akron Campus to help with student advising, event planning, recruitment, and basically whatever needs attention on a specific day. When I manage to get some free time I enjoy sharing a meal at one of my favorite restaurants (Crave, Briccio’s, Cilantro, Dontino’s, and The Lockview) with my girlfriend Kristine and some of our friends that share our food obsession. I also love to stay active by jogging, hiking, and playing racquetball.

I have a passion for education and see it as the foundation for solving so many of the social problems that inundate our society. It is my sincere hope to share stories and experiences about successful non-traditional educational methods that have helped to change lives for the better.
