I have lived in Boise since 2014 after I moved here from Virginia with my wife, three kids, and three cats. I love exploring the outdoors, camping, and snowboarding. I have spent most of my career working in education at various colleges and universities as well as an international study abroad non-profit. I earned three degrees from Washington State University, so I am a COUG through and through. I worked for Boise State University for eight years and now work at Simplot as part of the Leadership and Organizational Development team. I consider it a true honor to help develop teams and leaders to increase their impact and help feed the world.

I have seen first-hand the power of early childhood education and the difference it can make. I believe investing in our young children is critical for the future health and well-being of our community.  That’s why I am thrilled to be of service to the mission of Giraffe Laugh, which has been making a positive impact on Treasure Valley families and children for the past three decades. What a privilege to be a part of an amazing group of people and organization.
