I grew up on the West Side of Grand Rapids and I’m forever grateful for all my experiences growing up in a blue-collar family in a tight-knit community. I take pride in speaking about my experiences growing up and being a proud alum of GRPS that has molded me into who I am today.

Over 15 years ago, I moved to the Lakeshore where I still live, actively participating in the community and being the best dad to my twin boys, Miles and Reid. We also have a dog, Steele, who's an extension of our family and protector of the house.

When I'm not busy with my boys, coaching, or watching their sports, I enjoy exercising and spending time with family and friends. You'll often find me at a friend's house watching Michigan games in the fall. I love all genres of music, though my boys say I'm stuck in the 80s, 90s, and Motown.

Contact me today, so we can have a conversation and get to work with real solutions for your business.
