  • My favorite places to visit: Anywhere where there are fish to catch.
  • Hobbies: Fishing (fly fishing in particular); guitar (electric, acoustic, and bass); sports, especially college football (Ride with Pride! Go Pokes!)
  • I’m at Cedarville because I saw an opportunity to educate pharmacists who would use their profession as a mission field and engage the culture for God through pharmacy.
