Brian's Bio

Hi Everyone! My name is Brian, and I am an admissions counselor in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. I help recruit students to the University of Illinois by traveling in Illinois and on the East Coast. I am originally from Chicagoland but have called the Central Illinois region home for the past 6 years. Champaign-Urbana is an incredible community and has a lot to offer you as an Illinois student.

I started working here in June of 2014. I was drawn to Illinois because of the major investment and influence it has on the state, the country, and the world. When I think of Illinois, I think of our world-renowned faculty doing research with undergraduate students, the outreach efforts our campus has to improve the lives of others in our community, and the transformative experiences our students have to engage with differing perspectives from their own.

When I am not busy recruiting students, you can find me working up a sweat at Campus Recreation Center East (better known as CRCE), attending the latest opera production at the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts, or relaxing on our beautiful Quad with friends. Yes, admissions counselors are real people too!
