About Me: I arrived in Columbia from New Jersey, where I was the director of the Marching Band at Rutgers University for 18 years. Working on a large campus is where I developed a passion for guiding students on their way to success. I love working on a college campus, college sports and I’m thrilled to have joined Gamecock Nation! I love listening to all kinds of music, cooking and working on our house. My wife and I love the outdoors, so we hike, run, bike and take walks with our dog, Jethro whenever we have the chance.
Favorite Spot on Campus: It’s a tie between Williams-Brice Stadium and the Horseshoe, I love the vibe in the stadium on game day. Sandstorm is awesome! The Horseshoe is one of the most beautiful spots I’ve ever seen on a college campus.
Length of Time At USC: Since September 24, 2018
Favorite Gamecock Moment/Best Part about being a Gamecock: I’ll never forget my first Gamecock Football Game. Best part about being a Gamecock is being able to see and feel the incredible sense of community on the USC campus every day.
