The UAS Web Strategy Committee is a consensus-based committee, accountable to the UAS Executive Cabinet, co-led by the regional web designer and web developer. The committee is comprised of representatives from each UAS campus and key regional departments. Three members of the committee have been appointed by the Provost, three by the Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Management, and two each by the Ketchikan and Sitka Campus Directors.

The UAS Web Strategy Committee is responsible for:

  • Analyzing current web strategies and identifying opportunities for improvement
  • Setting UAS web operational standards and guidelines
  • Planning and coordinating ongoing web projects
  • Promoting “best-practices”  to department content creators
  • Reviewing future directions and present recommendations to UAS leadership
  • Recommending UAS web policies

In fulfilling these responsibilities, the committee strives to:

  • Coordinate UAS web technologies to ensure they interoperate as a coherent whole;
  • Convey one UAS brand with a consistent design and navigation scheme;
  • Support UAS departments in the efficient fulfillment of their objectives;
  • Include the perspective of UAS stakeholder groups including Faculty Senate and Student Government.

The UAS executive cabinet formalized and charterd the UAS Web Strategy Committee on September 5, 2012.

Bachelor of Arts, Journalism with emphasis in Public Relations
Humboldt State University, California 1997.

United States Air Force, 4.5 years
Honorable Discharge

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.

Kayaking in S.E. Alaska, taking a breakWhile 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, 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

  • Created UAS course schedule. Resulted in one regional authoritative source for class information, saving UAS money in print production and mailing costs
  • Designed UAS whale-tale logo in use regionally today (learn, engage, change later being added). New logo was recognized for excellence by Admissions Advertising Awards
  • Researched and deployed content management system, insuring consistency of brand and reducing duplication of information
  • Co-chair regional Web development group, recognized by the UAS Executive Cabinet
  • Coordinated a complete redesign of the UAS website, bringing UAS into alignment with our accreditation goals and objectives
  • Developed and manage UAS photo database, reducing our potential for copyright issues

Manager, Student Activities Center, UAS: 8/99 - 2/03

  • Designed facility from the ground up with student input. While I managed the facility, it was largely operated and maintained by students
  • Founded the Outdoor Recreation Center (ORC). The ORC rentals were self-supported through rental fees and use was coordinated with Outdoor Studies (ODS) program.
  • Developed mechanical skills and saved money by learning to make many cardiovascular equipment and facility repairs
  • Coordinated physical education classes, wellness programs and entertainment opportunities, logging record event attendance
  • Created training manuals for all functions, including climbing facility, help desk and performance spaces. Although student staff turn-over was low, this was critical for safety and ease of new staff transition

Administrative Assistant, Student Activities/Student Government, UAS: 8/96 - 9/99

  • Designed facility from the ground up with student input. While I managed the facility, it was largely operated and maintained by students. Created outdoor gear rental program with seed money from the UAS Student Government Association. My close work with the USUAS-JC helped me to further refine my skills in oral and written communication and group dynamics
  • Moved many services online, to include housing referrals, rates and event information
  • Worked collaboratively with Facility Services and other stakeholders to fund and create the UAS ID system that utilized magnetic door locks and is still in use today
  • Worked with Student Senators and local businesses to create a student discount program, saving students money at places they visited while also promoting UAS in the community
  • Served as technical consultant to the Whalesong student newspaper, moving their publication and advertisements online

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.

I've loved living in Alaska since I first arrived here at the tender age of 2.  I've been blessed to see much of the state having lived in Chugiak, Talkeetna, Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Ketchikan.  The beauty and serenity of this special place we live (even with the large amounts of rain) is inspiring.  After graduating from a little Alaskan high school (we had a graduating class of 18 students) I attended the University of Alaska Fairbanks, graduating with a BA in Business Administration in 1990.  I 've had the pleasure of working with college students for over twenty years and I am inspired by the perseverance of our students as well as the power of education to help students change their lives for the better.
