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

Being a service-oriented person, I enjoy working alongside our partners to achieve business success. I am genuinely interested in hearing about each of our partners specific hurdles and connecting dots to create custom marketing solutions. Coordinating our team’s skills with our partners vision of growth and industry knowledge, I believe we can achieve superior results to create an exceptional partnership.


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

With a beautiful wife and bright eyed baby boy, I love spending precious moments with them and my family. We love exploring the city to find the perfect brunch or Mexican restaurant. And if we aren’t at brunch, you may find me shopping at small local businesses, exploring Indiapolis’s artisan culture, or taking photography.


If you won the lottery tomorrow, what is the first thing you would spend money on?

I would invest and pay off everything. However, I would be most excited to buy a ticket to every Major League Baseball stadium and travel the whole summer watching baseball.
