I am a little surprised to find myself working at an IT company, but I see my skill set translating well to most lines of business, being behind the scenes and helping the team move forward. I have been in administrative and management roles for all of my adult life, from being the interim manager of a small bakery, to owning my own business with my father in law. I like getting into the details of how businesses run and what can make them better.
I live in Louisville with my wife and two children. For fun I like to hike with my kids, play frisbee, roast coffee beans, and make fountain pens. My education is in Christian ministry at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, which helps ground my business endeavors by pointing me towards the true motivating factor behind every endeavor, to glorify God through Jesus Christ.
