Fun Facts About Me

I’m a professional disc golfer, and I’ve traveled all over the country playing in tournaments. I started playing in 2006 and it’s been a great way to get out and enjoy nature while honing your mind as golf does throughout a round.

I really love strategy board games. I’ve been playing for the last few years and ridden the wave of success and popularity they have enjoyed. Some of my favorites are Feast for Odin, Gaia Project, & Concordia.

I work with paid media clients across our portfolio to dive deep into data to derive actionable changes that get the best ROI available and help meet our goals. I look beyond day-to-day account adjustments to make a lasting difference in each account.

How I Spend My Free Time

In my free time I love spending time with my wife and young son. While raising him there’s never a dull moment and we’re always learning something new together. We love the outdoors and try to spend as much time as we can outside, whether it’s running in the backyard or enjoying a weekend away camping in the wilderness of the Midwest.
