Job Description: I position and support front line staff to strengthen the culture of philanthropy and to optimize fundraising efforts in support of medical research.

Why CU? I was attracted to CU Anschutz for the opportunity to improve the lives of patients and their families by promoting a culture of philanthropy.

I most love helping staff find meaning in their work and achieve accomplishments that they previously may have thought were beyond their reach.

People might be surprised to know that my current vocational focus comes from my avocational passion for athletic coaching. My greatest achievement is really an ongoing effort, and that is serving as a husband, father and son, all guided by my faith.
