Favorite memory from Santa Clara 

Hard to say which favorite memory would stand out. There have been so many. Probably spending so much time overall growing up with my classmates, teammates, and fellow Broncos. 

Extracurricular activities while a student at SCU

I played basketball for 4+years while red-shirting my sophomore year and playing the next season after my original graduation date. 

My hobbies and interests

I have volunteered by tutoring elementary students in order to improve their reading skills with Reading Partners two mornings a week since I retired in 2004. I also try and work out at the gym three mornings a week. 

Things I am good at

I have served on three boards: SCU's Alumni Association, Kings Grove Corporation, and the Naglee Park Campus Community Association. 

Expertise that I have acquired in my life and career that I bring to my term of service on the SCU Alumni Board

I am able to see and understand multiple points of view and offer thoughtful alternatives.
