Impact and Inspiration: My father always said of my economics and theater majors, “If he doesn’t get the part, he can sell the tickets!” Well, after a 10-year career as a stage, commercial, and voice over actor in Minneapolis and New York City, I decided to go into apartment sales rather than ticket sales. As an entrepreneur and independent contractor, I feel very fortunate to have been able to put both of my majors to work since leaving St. Olaf College two decades ago.

Alumni Board Ambitions: As a member of the St. Olaf Alumni Board, I intend to collaborate with the Chapter Committee to increase physical and financial involvement among alumni throughout the country. I will work closely with the New York alumni chapter to engage alumni in the area, introduce new ideas to benefit our alumni community, facilitate networking and career opportunities, and welcome St. Olaf alumni who are new to the New York area.
