About Me

Pronouns: He/Him/His

Why did you choose to become a Hall Director?

I chose to become a Hall Director because of the profound positive effect Res Life had on me during my time as a student. Being a Hall Director gives me the unique opportunity to provide support and a safe and accepting environment to students, allowing room for them to grow in a transformative time in their lives. Working with students is one of the great joys in my life!

Why did you choose to work for Res Life at the University of New Hampshire?

As a student at UNH, I experienced firsthand how much effort this department puts into the success and growth of the residents on this campus. This campus isn’t just somewhere you live, it’s a home, and that is because of how hard everyone works to make it that way. Res Life at UNH strives every day to create strong, diverse, and engaging communities in each and every residence hall. I couldn’t be happier working in a department that cares so much about its students.

What advice would you give to students? 

Be brave, be confident, and don’t be afraid of failure. Attack each day with an attitude of “I got this!” and you will be unstoppable. For those moments where it doesn’t go your way, remember you are not alone. Ask for help, take advantage of resources, learn from it, and come back more ready to tackle the next hurdle than ever before!
