After retiring from a career as a university faculty member and senior administrator, he continues his Miami University connection as a part-time academic advisor.

Having witnessed the lasting impact Journey to Hope’s programs have had on members of the Greater Cincinnati community, he is pleased to be serving, whether entering data, helping with mailings, providing strategic input, or contributing monetarily.
