I’m a Digital Future Wizard  + Builder of Commerce Tech, Platforms, Ecosystems

I love focusing building digital product experiences from commerce technology to agency modeled team ecosystems which has allowed me to lead brands to uncharted levels of growth and success.

As a team leader, I focus on building fun and innovative team cultures. I am a people-centered, agile team leader who provides my team strong collaboration, resources and tools they need to be successful, creates a positive environment, and inspires a growth-mindset throughout the organization.

"Life Is Like Riding a Bicycle. To Keep Your Balance You Must Keep Moving"

- Albert Einstein

I am happily married to my wife, Cortney for the past 8 years and together since meeting in their High School Spanish class. We have recently welcomed my son to our family, along with our two dogs. Photography has always been my long-term passion and in 2018, I was promoted to my son’s staff photographer. I enjoy adventures and a cycling  enthusiast from mountain biking the Sierra Nevada to my wife joining me for a 180-mile tour from Reno, Nevada to Chico, California being my most notable shared touring experience yet. I am based in Chico, California and seek to make a meaningful difference daily. Additionally, I volunteer with Tahoe-Pyramid Trail and a Board of Advisor for The Frank N. Bender Center for Applied Logistics Management at Truckee Meadows Community College.
