About me

I am a family man with a wife and two boys.  I can usually be found doing work around the house, watching a game or being active in the community.  I love sports and have coached both youth football and baseball.  I am trying to get back into running but I have a ways to go with that.  I also enjoy a good round of golf too.


My business is my passion.  Being able to help businesses grow and put themselves in a position that they can help out West Michigan and other businesses in this community is something I love.  There are so many young, energetic entrepreneurs in Grand Rapids that just need the right support system to be successful.  I find it very enjoyable to be a part of that system.
