His responsibilities include managing the center's on-campus presence and outreach to students, faculty, and staff through both curricular and co-curricular programs. Key initiatives rolled out during his tenure include the Skandalaris Summer Internship Program (places WU undergraduates in internships with local entrepreneurs for a subsidized rate), IDEA: Innovation-Discovery-Experience-Action (a pre-orientation program for incoming freshmen), the Certificate of Accomplishment in Entrepreneurship, and a new Minor in Entrepreneurship. Since 2007, the entrepreneurship curriculum across the university has grown from 33 to 51 courses with more than 1 in 10 Washington University students enrolling in entrepreneurship classes each academic year. Prior to his employment in academia, II worked in various government and political offices. As an undergraduate at Webster University, he cultivated his entrepreneurial spirit by opening an on-campus coffee house and creating a closed-circuit television station. He earned a BA in Political Science and BS in Mathematics from Webster, an MPA from Saint Louis University, and is a PhD Candidate at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.
