He is passionate in helping to bring professionals and alumni to campus to talk with students through a variety of annual networking nights, designed to explore broadly the career paths in areas such as the Green/Environmental sector, Nonprofits, Arts & Entertainment, and Media and Communications. He holds a Masters in Counseling and Educational Development from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

He has been recognized as a campus sustainability innovator  for his work in helping to develop Emory’s annual Green Networking Night (save the date: Thurs Nov 8, 2018) and was a featured speaker at the National Wildlife Federation’s 2018 EcoLeaders Conference for career development work with college students in the green sector.
