After years as a freelance journalist and public relations professional, I worked briefly in health care marketing and public relations before joining the distinguished staff of Clemson University. As an Anderson native and Clemson graduate, I have always wanted to work at Clemson University. I am thrilled to be a part of such an exciting time in the university's history and to serve two of its most diverse colleges. I have been married since 2009 to my wife, Tanya, who has a history working as an infection preventionist; she is now faculty in our College's public health sciences department. We welcomed a son, Jack, into the world in May 2015, and our daughter, Sterling, was born in August 2018. I spend my free time woodworking, planning woodworking projects and fixing my woodworking mistakes. Now that our children are above the age of two, I have also rediscovered the joys of sleeping.

Research Interests

Accurately cutting dado joints without a jig. Archery and hatchet throwing.
