I am originally from Dundee, which is a city in West Scotland. I relocated to the United States to play soccer initially and then over time found my passion for student affairs. I joined Western Washington University in 2015 after spending time at University Nevada and Kansas State University both in housing operations respectively. I received my Master’s degree in Educational leadership from UNR. This followed a bachelor’s degree in physical education from McKendree University. I enjoy spending time with my family, wife Maria, daughter Nevada and dog Hermosa. I coach soccer in town and enjoy going to Oyster Dome, eating out at new places, and watching binge worthy TV shows.
