Vice President for Institutional Advancement
West Catholic Preparatory High School
I started in IA/Developement/Alumni Relations in 2006 at La Salle College High School. After serving in various IA roles, including working on a $25M cap campaign, I moved to West Catholic Preparatory High School in 2009 to serve as the VP for IA. I made the move with the Christian Brother President, Brother Richard Kestler, who was previously the President of La Salle College High School. Brother Richard shared his vision with me of how he wanted to sustain and advance the struggling 96-year co-ed, catholic institution at 45th and Chestnut, and I decided to go with him to implement his plan. Now starting my 4th year in urban education, I want to learn more and grow in this area as I see it as a needed piece to the puzzle of Philadelphia's future. I'm a graduate of Ithaca College, with a B.S. in Psychology with a focus in Orgainzational Communication. I live in Oreland, PA with my Wife Colleen and two children Ryan (3) and Luca (1).
