Several things made Curtis standout both during the interveiw process and as the head of that location. His passion for education, his professionalism, brainpower, willingness to do whatever needed to be done, and his strong desire to ensure that everyone and everything around him succeeded helped then, and is helping now, to make that location a stand-out in the system. Curtis is the type of professional that all us HR people would like to clone! Rick" — Rick Seter MBA SPHR, HR Business Partner, DeVry University, worked with Curtis at DeVry University "Curtis has demonstrated strong leadership abilities since day one on the job. He is a dedicated, hard working professional who works tirelessly to ensure that his students and staff are supported and encouraged. Curtis is constantly leading and developing new and creative programs, events and outreach activities for DeVry University's Bellevue Center and the Seattle Metro at large. His extensive experience and expertise in domestic and international student affairs shines in his day to day interactions with our various academic departments and Bellevue Center students from all over the world. It has truly been a pleasure to work with Curtis as my colleague and manager." — Sarah Heier, Senior Admissions Advisor, DeVry University, worked indirectly for Curtis at DeVry University "Exceptional leader, Educator and Mentor. Curtis helped me to develope my skills as a leader and educator while at Sanford Brown he was an excellent person to work with and he taught me alot. Now as the Associate Academic Dean at Concorde Career College I was able to put those skills that he taught me about leadership, and striving to be the best into action. He was an outstanding Director at Sanford Brown and I am glad to give him this recommendation." — Troy Best, Adjunct Professor Onground/online, Various Colleges, reported to Curtis at Sanford Brown College "Curtis is a detail oriented leader who has the ability to watch the bottom line without losing sight of whats important. He builds trust and relationships with those around him and makes decisions that will drive production over the long haul. Curtis runs a tight ship, but he knows how to have fun and build a tightly knit high performing team in a very short amount of time." — Brad Trnavsky, MBA, Director of Admissions, DeVry University, reported to Curtis at DeVry University "Curtis was well-known in the Academy as an excellent, caring instructor.

With Curtis' initial leadership and guidence, the campus remained on course with great retention of students after his departure. Curtis has a huge passion for education and it shows." — Kurt Ikemeier, Criminal Justice Department Chair, Kaplan College, reported to Curtis at Kaplan College "Curtis is a highly dedicated educator who pays special attention to changes in curriculum in order to provide the highest level of education. He is an adventurous man who constantly seeks out opportunities for fun learning experiences. In my years of studying under and working with Curtis I have seen him do many great things, among them: starting and running Camp Latieze, a science camp for California students taught by high school students under the guidance of Curtis and his wife; pioneer a "science club" at a California high school to foster science education; and take high school students on trips to Catalina Island science camps to learn and just have a good time. He is encouraging, optimistic, and easy to get along with. Being fun and easy to talk to is a valuable asset to any educator, and Curtis is certainly top-notch in both traits. Curtis sees his students' potential and always strives to help them meet it. When I was in Curtis's class I was honored to have been nominated by him to attend the National Young Leaders Conference in Washington D.C. He took the time to see my potential as a leader and went out of his way to encourage me. I am proud to have had the opportunity to work with Curtis, and to learn from him. In my many years of school, he remains my most influential teacher." — Tara Larcade, Student, University of California, Davis, was with another company when working with Curtis at California State Public Schools "Curtis is an extremely hard working, student-oriented, innovative educator who always strives to do his best in every situation in which he works.

I've been sketching and painting since the age of 10, however to date I have not really tried my hand at doing anything professionally. My style is definitely more technical than it is creative, but I've always believed that creativity can appear at any moment.
