Why do you do what you do?

I have always had a desire to serve others—to hopefully create value and leave things in a better state than when I arrived. Since the time I applied to and earned an M.B.A in Marketing from The Ohio State University, I knew that my path would be to learn marketing, branding, and communication strategy from the some of the best in the business—consumer brand marketers—and then later apply those learnings to help nonprofit organizations impact individuals and communities for good.

When Not Fundraising, I'm usually…

Spending time with family and friends, playing with our ultra-hyper, Jack Russell terrier, Baxter (he’s a nut!), participating in church activities, traveling or doing something arts and culture-related, and trying to sneak in a nap on Sundays before I have to start a new week of working, spending time with family and…you get the idea.
