Grew up in Ohio on our family farm and went to Ohio University and received a bachelor’s in business economics. 

Earned my MFE (master’s in financial economics) from Ohio University. Graduated cum laude for both undergrad and master’s degree.  

Have a wide variety of experience working in the IT industry, which I now leverage in construction organization.  

Over seven years of construction facilitation while also overseeing property management functions of both commercial and residential projects. Licensed in real estate.

Twice awarded Captain of the Ohio University football team. Go Bobcats! 


Personally remodeled both of my family’s homes from the studs.  

Growing up on a farm helped me embrace a good day’s effort and production. 

My family had some epic, hard-nosed yard football games, as my dad played 10 years in the NFL, my mom taught physical education, my oldest brother played 7 years in the NFL, and my other two brothers and I played Division 1 football. 

Some chuckle that I also swam in High school. Still love to get competitive, whether it’s pickleball, dodgeball, or softball. My wife and I enjoy being part of the social sports clubs of Grand Rapids. 

At home, my wife and I love to spend time with our two kids and dog, Scarlet.
