Additionally, he had the opportunity to work in the private sector as a partner and ally to many higher education institutions across the United States. He currently leads a cross-functional campus team at UK that is charged with building a comprehensive and thoughtful approach to the development of a future-minded approach to engaging gaming and Esports through the University environment.
