I grew up in the small town of Morrison, where I learned the value of hardwork and knowing the right people (My Mom was the mayor!).
In 8th grade I started my first business with my buddy Derek – P ‘n D Landscaping.
We had business cards, quote sheets and customers until a major drought wiped out most of our clients.
I then worked in restaurants throughout middle school and high school when soccer, studying and extracurriculars would allow.
My persistence and inspiration in the classroom landed me a Chancellor’s Scholarship at Unversity of Denver to study international business, french, and finance.
During my time at DU, I interned with a private jet club company, then followed my older brother Ryan’s advice to try a sales internship with Southwestern Advantage.
One summer ‘try’ turned into four committed years of personal development and organizational leadership throughout my undergrad and MBA.
As I interviewed for management consulting or sales careers, I received a phone call from a fellow Southwestern alumnus, Michael, who asked if I wanted to build a digital marketing company.
I had a great run at RevLocal helping grow the company from $0 to $35M over 7 years. In 2018, I joined Cultivate Advisors to do small business consulting.
