Hi! I’m your admissions counselor, Brian. Here’s a little bit about me and what I enjoy most about UNH.  I look forward to working with you!


Where is your favorite place on campus?

Thompson Hall lawn

What’s your favorite thing to eat on campus?

Smoked mozzarella ravioli from Hoco.

Favorite memory at UNH?

Winning a bronze medal at the New England Rowing Championship my freshman year.

What makes UNH so special?

The blend of size, location, academics, and activities makes it a great fit for many students. It's small enough that you can build strong connections and see familiar faces but big enough to have a lot of class options and activities to participate in, both on and off campus.

What’s your favorite UNH tradition?

Pancake night in the dining halls during finals week.

Where did you grow up?

Kingston, NY


My fiancée and I have a dog, Hudson, and a fish, Kendrick.

Do you have any hidden talents?

I love to knit and have made several scarves.

Any fun facts about yourself?

I enjoy exploring the world through Street View on Google Maps.

What’s the coolest thing you’ve ever done in your life?

Taking a trip to Denmark to meet extended family and further explore my heritage.
