What is your Camp history?

I began as an SIC on Aquatics in Cabin 7 in 1992. For the next 14 years, I served as an SIC on Motorboating, as a Camper Services representative, and as Head Counselor of Camp IV.

Where were you born?

Chapel Hill, NC

Where did you go to school?

NC State University and Duke University

What are your favorite hobbies?

I play the piano every day, and I play guitar whenever I can. I love to run. Walking with my wife makes any day better.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

A professional athlete or musician, of course. It’s more difficult to make a living doing those things than one would think!

If you could visit anywhere, where would you go?

Mars.

What is your favorite part of working at Camp?

I’d place enduring friendships at the top of the plus column. Sunsets. Sunrises. I also love being part of a place where integrity frames the mission.
