Fun fact

I was born in Trinidad and Tobago, a small dual island nation in the Caribbean. I migrated to the U.S. in 1972 to attend the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. I met my wife as a freshman at college. We have now been married 45 years

U-M Role

As Assistant Dean and Executive Director of the Newnan Advising Center, I was responsible for all related services and support to all LSA students.

Trip Experience

I have been to Africa on several occasions, including hosting a previous visit to Kenya a few years ago. It never gets old seeing the migration and all the animals in their natural habitat.
