I came to Pitt Johnstown in August of 2019 following careers in management as well as collegiate football coaching. A native of Johnstown I attended The University of Pittsburgh Oakland, The University of Pittsburgh Johnstown, and Saint Francis University to complete a Bachelor’s of Science. While doing so I participated in rugby at both Pitt campuses, was a member of the Saint Francis University football team, started the SFU Tritons Rugby Club, and am a lifelong member of Alpha Phi Delta Fraternity. Upon completion of my bachelor’s I completed a Master’s of Business Administration through Defiance College while serving full-time as The Assistant Head Football and Director of Football Operations.

What I love about Pitt Johnstown is the sense of community, the picturesque campus, and the dedication of faculty/staff to serving the student body both during their college experience and beyond!
