Director of Cost Modeling and Strategic Partnerships (Chicago)
When my career began as an intern at the Ceco Corporation, I thought it would be as a high rise builder in major urban areas. I followed this path for over 25 years until I built my first church project. I learned that while I may have helped change the landscape of America by building significant projects, I didn’t change peoples’ hearts until I helped teams create tools for ministry.
Why I Joined Aspen
I looked at Aspen as a servant team that created tools for ministry and outreach. I had dedicated my life to His service for over a dozen years. I am excited to continue my service with a dedicated group of individuals.
The Most Rewarding Part of My Job
My mentor used to say that we do the dirty, difficult and dangerous every day, the impossible just takes a little longer! Completing a difficult project and watching that congregation grow is extremely rewarding.
Words to Live By
Love God, love others, change the world! A servant heart begins with family and extends from that base.
Who Would I Love to Meet
UCLA Basketball Coach John Wooden. I am a student of the game and his teaching principles are on the wall in my office. Even after ten National Championships he saw his mission as a teacher not a high-profile coach.
Outside of Work I Enjoy
Traveling with my wife, children and grandchildren – we enjoy exploring new cities and regions.
