Vice President/Fraternity Education Officer
Alumni Relations Officer
I am the Alumni Relations Officer for Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia – Xi Omicron chapter. I’m a recent graduate of UWSP, receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Arts Management and Music. My hobbies include gaming, reading, playing music, composing, rock climbing, biking, playing Ultimate, and going to the movies. I plan on continuing to play and compose in hopes of playing with and composing for small groups and/or a big band. Outside of music I love to toss a disc and go rock climbing. I also love to travel and hope to backpack across Europe once graduating. Sinfonia is many things to me. It’s a brotherhood. It’s family. It’s passion. It’s who I am. Sinfonia is more than a four-year club or spot on your resume, it’s a life-long commitment. We are more than a glee club and we are bigger than just a college society. We are the oldest and largest national music fraternity. Phi Mu Alpha has given me the brother I never had, the support and love of a second family, and the outlet I need for music or to escape the mundane. I encourage all men who love music and wish to share their love and passion with others, to join Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia. I am Sinfonia and you can be too.
As faculty advisor of the Xi Omicron Chapter, I have the privilege to watch young men grow as brothers, musicians and people. I was initiated at the Xi Pi Chapter (UW-Whitewater) in 1996. I was provided opportunities to lead the chapter’s largest fundraising event, Celebration, as well as communicate with our chapter’s alumni for four years as the alumni relations officer. In 2004, I was hired by the Fraternity to work on the National Staff as the Director of Alumni Engagement, a position I held for almost seven years. Before joining the advancement office at UW-Stevens Point, I spent two years at Florida State University working in annual giving. My goal for the Xi Omicron Chapter is to make it a model chapter that others in our province can emulate. In addition to working on the national staff, I’ve attended six national conventions and have established many connections with province officers and other brothers who can share the good – and not so good -- stories from their chapters. Learning from their success and failures will help strengthen this chapter. Most importantly, I want the brothers to use this experience to become better men and better musicians and find ways to raise the expectations of what we believe a True Sinfonian should be.
