BIOGRAPHY

My entire life has been a pursuit of vibrancy, the feeling of being full of life and energy. It’s what I want for myself, other people, small businesses, nonprofits and communities. No matter what the pursuit or who the pursuer, sustained vibrancy is grounded in clarity, strategy and execution.

Small Small Business: Most of my life right now is focused on bringing top-notch expertise to entrepreneurs, micro businesses and nonprofits who normally have to settle for less experienced support. Working primarily through organizations and programs that support these leaders, we become a preferred provider making sure to optimize their funding.

Career & Education: For 30 years, I brought clarity and innovative analytical solutions to several large corporations (Allianz, Medtronic, Thrivent, 3M). I have a degree in mathematics and an MBA; I am a Fellow of the Society of Actuaries and certified in Strategic Workforce Planning. My most prolific corporate roles included actuarial, capital markets hedging, and workforce analytics.

Non-Profit: In late 2009, I co-founded Our Response, a non-profit focused on improving the quality of life for communities in northern Rwanda. As volunteer Executive Director, I led four trips to Rwanda and raised more than $2.5 million to move these areas toward self-sustainability. I have served on six nonprofit boards, helping all of them develop a clear and compelling vision with aligned strategies.

Personal: My wife Tracy and I have three adult children. In addition to my work, humanitarian work and family, I love disc golf, Texas Hold ‘em, podcasting and hanging out with friends.
