For those of you that have been around for a while, you may have seen me poke my head in every once in a while, especially when technical issues crop up. Well, my role has expanded now and I’ll be leading our community team at CC from now on. Our previous beloved community manager, Jon, has moved on to his next adventure, but he leaves our community in a great place (and also leaves me with some really big shoes to fill!)
A little background on me: I’m a UCLA grad (GO BRUINS!), am a dad of teenagers who are entering the college process in the next few years, and have been leading strategy for the technical teams for the last couple years on CC. On a personal level, I love basketball a little too much, have a really big soft spot for cats, and am a total technical geek. (Great - the cats comment probably just turned 50% of you against me ).
I’ll be working with our fabulous moderators and forum champions to help maintain and grow the community on CC. My role with be primarily strategic as we seek to provide the best place for college admissions information and discussion on the internet. I will be a bit less day-to-day than previous folks, but will work with our team here to make sure that all the administrative stuff gets completed.
I’m really excited for this expanded role and increased visibility with all of you. I promise to do my best to support our fantastic community and look forward to being with you in the forums!
