About John:
I’m honored to represent the College of Engineering as one of our the three senators this year.  I’m currently a Junior studying Mechanical Engineering.  Originally from the Spokane, WA area, I’m new Bozeman and MSU this past fall. I attended the University of Vermont for two years and am very thankful to be back in the west!  In Vermont, I served in various positions in greek life and student government, and bring a host of experience leading student organizations to my tenure in the student senate on campus.  My main focus as a senator is to ensure my fellow engineers’ concerns and aspirations for both themselves and for our College are represented and heard within ASMSU and the University's Administration.  I’m also committed to ensuring ASMSU is accountable, transparent, and truly a benefit to our community in our representation of the students, and the programs we offer to enhance the student experience on campus. Within ASMSU, I serve on the Parking and Transportation Advisory Committee, Finance Board, Constitutional Audit Committee, as well as working with the Exponent and Campus Entertainment.  Feel free to contact me via email or during my office hours. Go Bobcats!
ASMSU Office hours: Tuesday 3-4pm and Thursday 3-5pm
