I live in Ankeny, IA with my wife, Amanda, and our two boys, Tucker & Caleb. For the last 8 years I have been involved in many startups at all stages and in my free time I strive to learn as much about everything as I can. I am completely addicted to TED Talks.

I am an inventor, creator, idea generator, refiner, and catalyst. 

We are in an era of ideas and creation. Innovation is happening at a head-spinning pace and everyone is trying to gain or maintain a competitive advantage through technology or mind-blowing marketing strategies. New hardware, like wearable technology, beacons, and IoT are rapidly expanding those possibilities. I live, breathe, sleep, eat, and play in this arena. 


Hit me up and we'll grab a coffee or a beer! 

I always enjoy meeting new people and hearing new ideas.
