Where did you meet?
We met in our senior thesis class when we sat next to each other. We met just in time since it was Nicole's last semester as an undergraduate!
Favorite budding SJC courtship memory?
Nicole kept asking Mike to have lunch with her, and his response was "no thanks, I don't eat lunch." We still laugh about how clueless he was!

What's your message to the SJC community this Valentine's Day?
Enjoy your time at SJC, it will be the best years of your life! Always keep an open mind and be open to new experiences because you can miss the opportunity of a lifetime if you don't break out of your comfort zone. You never know, your soulmate may be sitting right next to you in class! Have a happy Valentine's Day!
We got engaged on Aug. 20, 2016. Nicole has a cousin that is a professional photographer. Mike asked Nicole’s cousin to help trick Nicole into thinking that we were doing a photo shoot at Argyle Lake to reveal a new photography logo. Meanwhile, Mike was planning the perfect way to ask and created a canvas to serve as the "new logo." It was wrapped in wrapping paper and placed on an easel so Nicole can unveil the "logo" for the camera. Much to her surprise, what she revealed was not a logo, but a canvas reading "Will you marry me?" Mike then proceeded to get down on one knee and asked Nicole to marry him, and she said yes!
