In 2017, I moved from the mountains surrounding the Central Valley of Costa Rica in Central America back to Kansas, where I was born and raised (Crazy, I know!).
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and 4 children (+1 more on the way!), motorcycling, reading (non-fiction), and fixing broken stuff, just about anything from small engines to kitchen sinks (think Mr. Fix-It in blue tights and a red cape). I'm an avid shooter (archery, pistol, shotgun, and rifle). Lately, I've been on a homesteading and hobby farming kick. Interesting how hobbies change over time...
I like organization, scheduling, and predictability. To me, there is nothing like creating good systems and implementing them. I’ve been Operations Manager for 3 successful businesses in the past.
I met Kevin, the owner of Lean Labs, while my family and I were living in Costa Rica (did I mention we moved from paradise back to Kansas?). We came to realize Lean Labs could use my abilities and increase my skills at the same time. It’s been great!
Since joining Lean Labs, I’ve been drinking the Inbound Kool-Aid and I have/had almost every certification HubSpot offers. I've further developed my marketing repertoire with 10 Digital Marketer certifications too.
I’ve been a devoted convert of Michael Gerber’s “The E-Myth” since I first read it back in 1996. Michael’s vision for documented, standardized work and processes has become my vocational quest.
