About Me

MJ graduated from Southern Illinois University Carbondale in 2016, where he earned a degree in Marketing. During his time at Southern, he served as the Interfraternity Council President as well as President and New Member Educator for his fraternity, Sigma Pi. He is one of the founding fathers of his chapter and credits his passion in student affairs to the advisors he worked with during this period of his educational career.

Before joining the University of Illinois family, he spent a year post-graduation in sales management working with corporate employees in the areas of professional development, sales strategy, and inventory management. This year, he made the switch from the corporate world to the academic world in pursuit of a Master of Education at the University of Illinois.

With gratitude and excitement, MJ will be joining the Fraternity & Sorority Affairs team where he is optimistic about the opportunities to develop himself both academically and collaboratively with the rest of the team to serve the fraternity and sorority community here at Illinois.
