“Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle, and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow, or it can crash. Be water, my friend.” - Bruce Lee


Henry serves as an Assistant Director of Development at UCCS where he focuses on building support for the College of Letters, Arts & Sciences. In 2020, he earned a B.A. from Western Colorado University in Gunnison, where he competed for the cross country and track teams. Following graduation from Western, Henry joined the Fellowship at El Pomar Foundation as a Program Director and discovered his passion for service to diverse communities in Colorado Springs.  

In his free time, you will find Henry meeting new people on the pickleball court or golf course, and when he is finished swinging the paddle or club, you can find him continuing to sweat over a spicy plate of food, especially Thai or Mexican.
