Candidacy Information

Vision for Sinfonia:

During 2020, I had time to reflect a lot on things I had let fall to the side, passions not pursued. In the latter half of 2021, I was contacted my actives of my home chapter only to discover that things were not well. Within one academic year, They managed to triple their membership and completely transform their brotherhood. Watching that and being able to help by simply being there and being voice of encouragement is my vision.

Why Are You Running:

I feel the fraternity is at a moment in time where it would benefit from new voices and ideas that come from a seasoned perspective.

Qualifications for Office:

I have time to give to the organization and a renewed interest and vigor entirely brought about by some introspection and reflection that I had while sitting at home doing nothing for 6 weeks in 2020. My duties at my job are that of problem solving and finding creative solutions to workflow issues.
