As a first-generation college student, I am acutely aware of the transformative power of a college education. Originally from Coos Bay, Oregon, I received my bachelor’s degree in History from Western Oregon University and my master’s degree in Applied Linguistics/Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) from Portland State University. As an educator by training and passion, I’m excited to educate prospective students about the world class programs and facilities that make Oregon Tech the premier polytechnic university in the Pacific Northwest! An avid outdoor enthusiast, I love any place that I can go hiking with my wife and French Bulldog, Wesley. I’m thrilled to work at Oregon Tech and call Klamath Falls home!
