What’s your favorite thing about NYIT?

I love that the Long Island campus has that traditional college campus feel with just steps from NYC.

At the Manhattan campus, I love the accessibility students have to the economic hub of the United States.

Why should students choose NYIT?

The small classroom sizes allow for students to have more of a one-on-one feel with professors and don't get lost in the shuffle.

What’s your best advice to students considering NYIT?

Do your research ahead of time. For transfer students, it is very important to be in the program at your current school that will set you up for the most transferable credits here at NYIT.

What’s your favorite vacation destination?

My favorite vacation destination is always when I am able to go back and visit England.

What are you doing when you’re not at work?

I love anything to do with sports. I mainly enjoy college football, college basketball, and the EPL.

What’s a surprising thing about you?

I was a kicker/punter at the University of Kentucky.
