My girlfriend Maggie and me at her cousin's wedding in Chicago in December 2014.
I am currently a senior at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota, studying Communication and Journalism. Through various major courses and my work as both a reporter and public relations associate for TommieMedia, I possess strong written and oral communication skills. I hope to further use these skills by obtaining a position in either public relations or corporate communications.
Prior to my time at St. Thomas, I completed two years of undergraduate study at the United States Military Academy at West Point. During summer military training and leadership seminars, I honed my leadership capabilites and sharpened my personal discipline, two qualities of mine I take great pride in and believe will serve me well in my future career.
In addition to academics, I have played hockey throughout my college career. After high school, I played two years of junior hockey before fulfilling my life long goal of playing division I college hockey. Following my time at West Point, I continued my career at St. Thomas, where I recently finished my final season. This year I had the honor of being voted one of the captains of the team by my teammates. Even though my playing career is over, I’m excited to be back next year as a student coach while I finish my last semester of school.

When I’m not pursuing my bachelor’s degree or playing hockey, I enjoy a number of activities including:
