Committee(s): Alumni Engagement and Communications


Why did you want to join the Alumni Council?:

I want to help alumni build relationships with Grinnell that are long-lasting and mutually beneficial. The college can do more to help alumni have great careers and live great lives. Likewise, alumni can contribute more to the college's ability to do this, and thereby help Grinnell flourish well into the future.

Like many others, I joined the council to try to move this idea forward.

A Quote I Like:

"It’s difficult to make predictions, especially about the future."

-Danish Proverb

A Little Bit About Me:

I am currently employed by Gallup as Chief Scientist for Strengths-Based Development and Principal Research, Predictive Analytics. I love using math to try to explain behavior.

I am also an avid musician (drums & guitar) and spend as much time as possible with my family, and on my farm.

Other Alumni Involvement: GRASP Coordinator
