Bio:  As an undergraduate I majored in History of Art but was chiefly involved with singing groups ranging from the Bach Society and the Colleguim Musicum to the Alley Cats and the Whiffenpoofs.  After graduation I worked in the Yale College Registrar’s office and in 1985 I became Registrar. In 1995 I was appointed Associate Dean in the Yale College Dean’s Office. I have performed a variety of functions in that role, including oversight of Yale College finances and administrative affairs, student organizations, and physical resources (including undergraduate housing). I retired from Yale in 2014. Outside of Yale I have been active in Trinity Church on the Green. My wife and I have two sons, one serving in the Peace Corps in Mongolia and the other working at a desert research station in Namibia.
