  5. Biography

    I was born in the same small town outside of Columbus that my mom, her parents, grandparents and great grandparents grew up in. I was never a good student when I was growing up and decided to work instead. I had several jobs including managing a restaurant and factory management. I really didn't like what I was doing and always wished I had the opportunity to return to school. In 2008, I met my wife and we decided that it would be tough but that we would both return to school. That's when I enrolled at Lorain County Community College.

Questions and answers

Why did you choose to attend Baldwin-Wallace?

When I first returned to school I really only planned on earning an Associate degree but I started talking to one of my professor's at LCCC and he told me to check out BW. I made an appointment with the Admission office & I was hooked. Even the students at the desk made me feel at home and I couldn't wait to enroll.
