    What is your background and experience?What is your background and experience?

    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).

  • QUESTION 03

    What is it about you that makes you uniquely positioned to excel in your role?

    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.

  • QUESTION 04

    What are some of your interests and hobbies outside of work?

    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.

  • QUESTION 05

    What is one thing that most people don’t know about you or would be surprised to learn?

    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.
