What charity or cause are you personally passionate about and why?

I am most passionate about helping children and families connect with the health and education resources in their communities that provide them opportunities to reach their fullest potential. Regardless of geography, demography, or socio-economic factors, everyone deserves the chance to become the best version of themselves.

What is the coolest concert you have ever attended and why?

I really enjoyed seeing the band Chicago live in concert. They put on a fantastic show, and it was incredibly special because my entire family attended together.

What do you like most about working at Incite?

It’s great that we use entertainment to reach people with positive messages in places and spaces like concerts, festivals and community gatherings.  People are more receptive to new information when they are already doing something they enjoy.

When you are not working, what kinds of things do you like doing?

I enjoy spending time with my wife and son, as well as cycling, watching my favorite sports teams, and sampling craft beer from local, independent breweries. 

Why is making a difference in people’s lives important to you?

There are a number of ways to leave an impact on this earth, and I can think of none better than helping people.  That is why the work we do through Incite is so important to me both personally and professionally.  I love the fact that we help people help themselves, and that those individuals often end up helping their friends and family members connect and succeed.
