I graduated from Western Michigan University with at BS in Industrial Design and was a pitcher on the varsity baseball team. While taking my studio classes, I gained knowledge in product development and research along with insights into business practices thru internships at public & private companies in the area. These experiences prepared me for the "real world" and multifamily housing. I was first brought in as a hired gun to produce intro and help videos for a website. My new found talents had me thinking about a career in the film world but that thought was short lived when base grade carpet & vinyl pulled me back. I continued to provide support for the company and learned more about the industry. Soon I was presented with change and a huge opportunity to work with great people to create something new called Carpeturn.com. Since creation is something that drives me to the core, this path was an easy decision. I would say that one of my best qualities is the quest to learn as much as I can from everyone who influences me. Then use lessons learned to create new processes or improve productivity. I will always ask "why?"
So a little about me...I am an Arizona native and grew up in Cave Creek. I played baseball, basketball and football through high school and then went on to college to play baseball. My career was done after college but our family still lives the dream through my younger brother Brett who is playing in the Twins organization. My younger sister Maggie recently finished college and is working for the Cleveland Federal Reserve using her economics and trilingual background. My parents both hail from the Motor City and are still happily living in the house I grew up in.
