Born and raised in Troy, New York, the home of Uncle Sam, I have been interested in politics and government from the moment I learned how to talk. As the son of two proud Ithaca College alums, I grew up hearing stories of my parents’ college days. The quads, the Towers, the fountains, and the Chapel were all just settings of my parents’ stories before they were actual places to me. Now that I am a student at this amazing college, I hope to one day have great stories to tell my own children.
Applying for the Executive Assistant position last year was perhaps one of the best decisions I have made at college. Under the guidance and mentorship of 2014-15 SGA President Crystal Kayiza, I learned what it takes for the SGA Executive Board to be successful in representing the students of IC. In addition to the regular responsibilities of my position such as operating social media accounts, I worked to expand SGA’s communications outreach through videos. I created a Fall 2014 recap video from photos and video I captured of SGA’s first semester. I also launched This Week in SGA, a weekly video series in which an executive board member provides an update of what occurred in SGA that week.
As VP of Communications I hope to expand the work I started last year. My goal is to create a two-way channel of communication between you, the students, and SGA. We are your representatives so it is imperative that we hear directly from you. Please email me at any time with suggestions, questions or comments at firstname.lastname@example.org. Ithaca College is an amazing place with an awesome student body, and through SGA we can make everyday a great day to be a bomber!
