In my role, I connect with business leaders who might be interested in the type of transformational growth we deliver. I seek to develop an open and honest relationship with those I serve to help them grow their business.
Prior to my tenure with Valve+Meter I worked extensively with education non-profits as an administrator responsible for strategic growth. With each role, I was responsible for developing and maintaining strategic relationships to advance the mission of the organizations I served.
I am an alum of Taylor University (Upland, IN). In 2016, I received my Master’s of Education (M.Ed) in Educational Leadership and Administration from Indiana University (Bloomington, IN).
I tend to have a natural ability to discover uniqueness or hidden opportunities within a business or individual with a conversation. This helps me understand the needs of a potential partner and determine whether or not we might be able to help. I get energized by complex challenges and the potential for life-changing solutions.
I live in Bloomington, IN with my wife, Julie, and our three children: Reade, Sylvie and Ellerie. We enjoy hiking and exploring the areas around Bloomington – and the food, can’t forget about the food! I also mountain bike just about every chance I get.
For the past several years, I have served on the board of ACE Preparatory Academy Charter School, a grade K-5 charter school for the city of Indianapolis. I am also a member of a local Truth@Work roundtable.
Growing up I was heavily involved with 4-H and FFA. In my 10 years as a 4-Her I did everything from show pigs to photography. I even won Grand Champion in the Foods project two years in a row. One year for an apple tart and the second year for a business I developed selling homemade beef jerky.
