BUSINESS AND COMMUNITY LEADER
My experience working with more than 100 companies and community organizations has shown me the importance of delivering on your promises. That is true whether you are a person or an organization. It is the essence of building a great brand.
I enjoy working with companies that are innovative, dynamic, and willing to think differently. I bring them a perspective on brand development that helps clarify their vision, measurably improve their business, and create a great place for people to work. In doing so, I strive to be honest and make strong recommendations on how to build a brand providing them everything they need to make an informed decision.
I also believe that serving the community is an integral part of doing business. I’m the past board chair and current marketing chair for In4All, a non-profit organization that brings educators and businesses together to impact students who have been historically underserved at critical points in their K-12 education. It has given me new perspective on the barriers that exist in our society for so many students and their families, and its made me a more informed citizen.
When I’m not working, I enjoy time with my family at home, the beach, or one of many youth sporting events watching our kids compete. I run enough to stay in shape for the Hood-to-Coast Relay which I have done 19 times now. And I’m an avid Oregon Ducks fan (whose son goes to Oregon State). I’m happiest strolling the beach in Manzanita, Oregon, with my wife and dog on a clear day.
