Special Thanks: I would like to say thanks to my parents for their love and support throughout my educational career. Thank you to the amazing educators in the Kinesiology/Physical Education department. You all always inspired, encouraged, and challenged me to be the best student and physical educator I can be. Even though I was a commuter, everyone in Lengyel Hall truly made me feel like a member of our little community on the outskirts of campus. Lastly, I would like to thank my wife because none of this would have been possible without her. Mickelle, thank you for always being there for me and supporting my dreams.

Favorite UMaine memory: Net Games class taught by Tomo.
