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!).
Finance for 14+ Years
Five years with Lean Labs
Helped 60+ clients grow
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’m the Head of Finance and Onboarding (HFO for you acronymically inclined folks) for Lean Labs, so I jockey a lot of back-office work and bookkeeping. 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!
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.
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.
