Education and Credentials
- B.A. in Journalism with a Public Relations emphasis, The Ohio State University
- Favorite places to visit: Maine, specifically the Downeast Coast, and Acadia National Park
- Hobbies: Singer, songwriter, guitarist, and performer with multiple regional groups. Love motorsports, in particular Formula One. Enjoy the classic car hobby, especially Corvettes. Also a big fan of Columbus’ very own NHL team, the Columbus Blue Jackets!
- Why Cedarville: This was a God-arranged marriage between our company, the ICC, and Cedarville University. There was a God-shaped hole in this industry that needed filled with intentional, well-prepared, Christian professionals, and we were blessed enough to be the ones that God entrusted with the vision. Each year I am humbled at what started on a napkin at a coffee shop right down the road in Worthington, and now we are launching young people to the four corners of the globe, in some of the most influential companies in design!
