I am a graduate of Iowa State University and Xavier University (MBA) from Fort Dodge, Iowa. Following college, I took a job with Phi Delta Theta Fraternity in Oxford, Ohio. I traveled as a leadership consultant, directed the Fraternity's expansion efforts for two years, led the organization's leadership conferences and membership education for three years, and currently oversee the Fraternity's communication/web efforts and its Iron Phi philanthropic initiative ((website hidden)). I'm an entrepreneur, having launched GrassrootGive ((website hidden)) a consultancy that creates grassroots fundraising programs that help non-profit organizations and companies accomplish their missions and goals while strengthening their philanthropic relationships.
I live in Ames, Iowa and spend my free time reading, watching sports, going on running adventures via Megabus, blogging ((website hidden), (website hidden)) planning weekend getaways, advising the Iowa State Dance Marathon and Iowa State chapter of Phi Delta Theta, adding experiences to my bucket list, spending time with my beautiful wife Tillie and son Calvin and trying to control my two rescue dogs.
