|Public and Media Relations|
Associate Director of Campus Recreation, Interim Regional Web Coordinator
Student Recreation Center
Bachelor of Arts, Journalism with emphasis in Public Relations
United States Air Force, 4.5 years
Routinely teach employee development classes in various aspects of the Content Management System used at UAS. Other courses taught include Digital Photography, Digital Asset Management and use of Adobe Acrobat during Staff Development programs.
Following high school graduation in San Diego, CA I escaped the city life for the remotes of Alaska by joining the US Air Force. Stationed at Eielson in Fairbanks, Alaska I crewed KC-135 aerial refueling and reconnaissance aircraft.
Following my honorable discharge, I worked the summer on the "slime line" working in the canneries of Bristol Bay, Alaska to get the feel for Alaska life outside the military. Although the life of cannery work was never in my cards, I did enjoy the comradery of working in a fish camp, enough to return for several summers while pursuing my degree from Humboldt State University in northern California.
While attending Humboldt, I went on National Student Exchange to the University of Alaska Southeast in Juneau during my Junior year. Upon graduation from Humboldt, I returned to Juneau and have been working with UAS since. My role at UAS have varied from employment with student housing to manager of the recreation center to my current position as web coordinator. What attracted me to Southeast Alaska was the feeling I had as an exchange student. That was the feeling of euphoria one felt as a child upon waking up the morning of a trip to Disneyland. For the outdoor enthusiast, Juneau has just about everything for those who enjoy kayaking, hiking, hunting, camping, fishing, skiing...you name it.
My wife Lori also works at UAS as the Director of the Student Resource Center. We have a wonderful son Garrett, who loves the outdoors and spends most of his time along the shoreline. Just recently Garrett has taken to ocean kayaking. We now all explore the coastline in the comfort of kayaks. To coin the term, "Life is Good".
Accomplishments while at UAS include:
Regional Web Coordinator, University of Alaska Southeast: 2/03 - Present
Manager, Student Activities Center, UAS: 8/99 - 2/03
Administrative Assistant, Student Activities/Student Government, UAS: 8/96 - 9/99
Living Group Advisor & Community Advisor , Humboldt State University/UAS: 8/94 - 8/96
As an undergraduate, I served as a Living Group Advisor (2 years) at Humboldt State University and as a Community Advisor at UAS while on National Student Exchange. As anyone who has this experience will tell you, it was both challenging and rewarding and worthy of mention as it helped shaped me into the professional I am today.
