Q: What drew you to MSUM?
A: I liked the balance of a small school size with state school opportunities.

Q: What is one thing that surprised you about MSUM?
A: The amount of pride and sense of community that MSUM has definitely stood out to me. Also, I think the dragon mascot is pretty cool!

Q: What unique experience or skills from your last job do you bring to MSUM?
A: I worked with summer camps for more than 10 years and I believe that experience really grew who I am today. I’m able to adapt and go with the flow: even if it means playing at least 15 different versions of Tag at any given time!

Q: If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
A: I would like to visit Japan someday. Japanese culture and its food is fascinating to me and if I do visit, I think I will end up eating everything!

Q: What energizes you at work?
A: I enjoy what I do because I’ve always had a love for connecting with passionate people. With my new position, I’m excited to serve as someone who can help and guide people who are looking to discover new passions.

Welcome to MSUM, Will. We’re glad you joined the #DragonFamily!
