About Me

I always enjoy opportunities to connect people who can enhance each other’s businesses, or align with each other’s community service goals. On a personal level, Jillian and I have been married for almost 14 years, and we have a daughter going into fifth grade. We are enjoying restoring our 1915 home in Hastings, and every year we look forward to hosting a big community Halloween party, where we normally get in excess of 2,000 trick or treaters!!
