    Current job title and employer and briefly describe what it is you do: As the Deputy Commander for U.S. Army Garrison Bavaria, I lead a team of 1750 Department of the Army Civilians across four bases in Bavaria (Germany) that support U.S., German, and NATO forces throughout Europe.

    Academic experience at Saint Michael's College help prepare you for your career: My liberal arts education, and the diverse viewpoints and experiences of my professors, greatly assisted me in becoming a successful Army professional and life-long learner, achieving multiple graduate degrees that afforded me broader opportunities to serve our Nation.

    Favorite memory or class from your time studying at St. Mike’s: I still reflect on the readings and lessons from the introductory Philosophy of Religion (Theology) course that first exposed me to Kung and Kierkegaard.

    Completed or are completing a graduate program, please provide the name of the degree and institution: MSc International Relations (Troy State), MA History (USACGSC), MSc Strategic Studies (US Army War College).

    Other information you would like to share or advice for incoming or current students: Take in as many of the programs and offerings the school has on offer as you never know what will "stick" but be wary of thin-slicing yourself and your time too much!
