I am a strategic manager with experience in budgeting, data analysis, stewardship programs, fundraising, and grant writing. I hold a Master of Public Administration degree. I have a passion to build enthusiasm in an organization. I enjoy providing team leadership, establishing partnerships and strengthening relationships. I did stand-up comedy and was the winner of the Jay Leno Comedy Challenge held in my hometown of Des Moines, Iowa. As a proud father of 8 wonderful children, 4 boys and 4 girls, I am like the mayor of a small city. My awesome wife and I share a full spectrum of life and faith experiences.
