Personal Note

My transition to consulting was driven by my desire to have a more hands-on role in helping clients solve the important issues their businesses face. Creatively solving problems and adding value to a client’s business is a rewarding experience, and it’s very motivating to know you had a positive and measurable impact. Outside of work, I enjoy hiking and camping with my wife Laura and our chocolate lab, Barley, boating on Lake Michigan and the surrounding rivers, and gardening.
