I'm a communications enthusiast, cherish the community of leaders researchers and creators I've been privileged to work with in the past decade. In addition to starting bloan.co, I'm partner at Douglas·Erhard, a non-profit foundation focused on giving back to the communities where we live and work. I grew up in a rural Missouri community, and dreamed of a life on the other side. Since, I’ve lived in China, Malaysia and Las Vegas (Somedays I feel like I’m just getting started). I'm into entrepreneurship, travel, design, architecture, running (Chicago Marathon),. Most important I believe in destiny, and maybe that is why I’m always smiling.
