Get to Know Your Counselor

What are your life goals?

I would love to mentor/counsel young men. There is a growing need for young men to have older guys that hang out with, mentor, and pour into them, to help them deal with family life when it gets tough, as well as teach them how to navigate this big thing called growing up.

What is your favorite college memory?

Camping with some friends at the beach in San Clemente, CA to hang out and surf. We spent three days there and finished the weekend with a competition at Denny's to see who could eat the most pancakes.

Where do you hang out in Los Angeles?

I love the Arts District downtown. There are lots of great restaurants there that have huge murals painted on the sides of them, and provide options for all kinds of people watching and food tasting. It is also home to one of my favorite spots there, Urth Cafe. Check it out!

What advice would you give to your incoming students?

Everyone is different, and have such unique perspectives on life. Get to know people around you, even if they are different and it feels awkward at first. You will be surprised at what you find and will help you understand the person a little bit more.
