Grand Rapids, MI

Over the course of my career, I’ve been an entrepreneur, consultant, executive, scholar, chef and competitive cyclist. What’s the “red thread” that connects all of them together? I’m a pattern recognizer with a love for new ideas, problem solving and story-telling. I excel at helping organizations - large and small, established and brand new - think big, be consistent and get moving. I have a passion for supporting others, enabling social entrepreneurship and encouraging small bet at a time.
