What excites you about your job?

I love being able to get to work around students who seek to change the world with their crafts. The heart and spirit of an artist is incomparable. 

What types of applicants do you see?

Our office is very collaborative, so even though we each serve as liaisons for specific art departments, we get to encounter students all across disciplines. I love the variety that it provides to our work! 

If you were on an island and could bring three things, what would you bring?

My Tasha (wife), my Jax (son) and my Taj (daughter). 

Where can we meet you on the road?

I’ll be traveling to Texas, Virginia, Georgia and all across NC recruiting the finest artists in the country. Outside of work, you can find me at your nearest Target, Trader Joes or any dance happenings. 

What's your favorite spot on the UNCSA campus?

Anywhere that dance is taking place. Also, I love the look and feel of the library. 

How about your favorite spot in Winston-Salem?

The Old Fourth Street Filling Station in the West End!
