About Me: Outside of my full-time work in higher ed., I spend lots of time with my wife and two kids, take courses on instructional design, write music, read marketing and copywriting books, and listen to podcasts.

Favorite Quote: Beauty is found in the manipulation of dissonance, not in the presence of consonance.

Advice to Students: Don't strive to be perfect; just do really good work, and try to keep moving forward. College is mostly about the process, not necessarily the goals you set (your goals will likely change as you progress).

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
