What do you enjoy most about being a Prism member?   Collaborating with people from around the college and engaging in activities that promote diversity and
inclusion, education, advocacy, and support for all of our community members.

What PRISM projects are you most interested in, present and future?  I’ve been one of the primary Safe Zone trainers on campus from 2017-2020, and this has been a really enjoyable initiative that came to be via Prism. I always enjoy Prism gatherings and look forward to continuing the Prism-based book club.

What do you like best about the LGBTQIA+ community? Seeing so much growth in my own lifetime regarding rights, representation, and visibility. The diversity and intersectionality of this community. Being an ally to others in the community with different identities than I have.

What would people be surprised to learn about you? I’m my wife’s art manager. She uses mixed media to create art out of found/recycled materials. It is fun participating in local art shows, and being creative while keeping items out of landfills.
