Why I Wanted to Serve on the Alumni Council:

I never was challenged to push myself more in my life than during my 4 years at Grinnell. This was due to an amazing group of peers and faculty who demanded the best of me because they demanded the best of themselves. I wanted to join the committee to have an opportunity to get that same push from fellow council members while returning the favor by pushing Grinnell to be the best of itself.

A Quote I Like:

“Using no way as way, having no limitation as limitation.”

―Bruce Lee

A Little Bit About Me:

I am the Artistic Director/CEO of CLIMB Theatre, a touring arts organization that uses arts integration techniques and community building strategies to strengthen the skills of Accountability, Resilience, Empathy, Advocacy, and Self Control (A.R.E.A.S.).

I am passionate about intersecting with as many communities as possible and anything related to The Goonies, the MN Vikings, Grinnell Track & Field, my 3 daughters and my wife (in no particular order).

Other Alumni Involvement: 2021 Multi-Cultural Reunion Planning Committee
