I was born and raised in Southern Arizona and quickly moved to the mountains after High School -- Flagstaff, AZ! I love traveling, craft beer, and of course Relay! I work for my alma mater - Northern Arizona University - in Student IT Support. Southern California is one of my favorite places to visit - my family and I visit every year for a week on the beach!

About My Involvement in Relay
I was asked to volunteer at a Relay event when I was 12 years old as a boy scout in Oro Valley, AZ. After attending my first event, I was hooked! I was a team captain, youth involvement chair, and online chair with my first event, then chaired a Youth Retreat for ACS in the Tucson metropolitan area. After moving to Flagstaff and NAU, I served as a logistics director, online director and then the executive director of the collegiate event for two years!
