Q&A

What do you really do at work?
As Communications Manager, I oversee all internal and external communications for numerous associations, ensuring that all communication channels are efficient and effective when delivering consistent and engaging information across all platforms. With my creativity and experience in Marketing and Communications, I also work to develop new and exciting strategies.

Describe your Perfect Day.
The perfect day starts with an early morning workout, then I head to the lake with my wife for some time on the water (paddle boarding). Next, we spend some time adventuring around some place new (small towns, local parks, shops, etc.), follow that up with a delicious sushi dinner, and then end the day with my loved ones, a bonfire and some drinks.

What’s your Superpower?
Communication. It’s something that I value deeply. I believe that so many obstacles can be overcome with solid communication and that it is a large key to success. Also, for some reason, people open up to me and find me easy to talk to which really only strengthens said power.

What’s your life motto?
“Never take life too seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.”

What inspires you?
I am inspired by competition. I enjoy pushing myself to be the best and strive to be the best at whatever I do. Be it professionally or personally, if I am going to do something, I want to be the best at it.
