    Favorite Penn State Memory: Watching PSU in their first Big Ten Basketball game, in Rec Hall, against Indiana – with free tickets (tickets were free for Grad students back then!)
    Favorite hobby/activity: Spending time with wife and kids (3 boys), especially if it involves traveling
    Reason for joining APG: Initially asked to serve as Faculty Liaison, but once involved, I’ve really enjoyed getting to know and work with Alumni.
