I've always been consumed and focused on questions -- mainly, why? That led me to pursue an undergraduate degree in Philosophy, and a Master of Divinity degree with a focus on public policy and institutional structure. I'm a millennial, and higher education needs millennial engagement and leadership. Higher education can both shape the future and transform communities. At the end of the day, I'm going to keep asking questions, and enjoy the company of my family -- my spouse, Stacy, and two pups -- Barley and Socrates. Let's hone our craft, shall we?

I'm a husband, a father of four daughters, a historian by training, an academic administrator by vocation (Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs at Barton College in Wilson, NC), and a trail runner for fun. I start more things than I finish. I am an enthusiast, and I distrust my enthusiasm. I wear bow ties.
