Assistant Director

Personal Highlights

I’m a workaholic. I’m used to running the show alone, so this new opportunity will be a bit of an adjustment for me. But I’m a patient man and willing to learn anything I can. I was raised in a military household, so apologies in advance. I’m new to Des Moines, so aside from work, my main focus will be meeting new people and having a support system. I enjoy grabbing a drink and watching literally any sport. I’m shy but also charismatic. Kind of 2 halves of the same coin in a lot of different ways. Iowa Hawkeyes, Minnesota Vikings, and San Antonio Spurs all the way.
