Fun Fact: I have been the opening musical act for two Grammy Award winners.

Hobbies: Singer/songwriter, playing piano and guitar, collecting sneakers, playing with my pet pug Elvis, attending sporting events and concerts with my wife.

Why I Chose UNC: From the minute I walked into my interview, the staff and faculty were extremely welcoming and friendly. This made me feel like I was at home. Chapel Hill gives residents the rare opportunity to live in a place with a small town feel, but with all the benefits and access of working at a large metropolitan academic center. I also felt that living inside the Research Triangle is a place where my family and I could thrive.
