Why do you want serve as Director: I believe that change is needed. I also believe that my perspective on what that change is could be drastically different if I were in a Director role. I can’t change the things that I don’t know, and this would allow me to have first hand knowledge of what is “really” important and not just what I think is important. I want to see how the industry looks top down.

I am very involved with our local school district (Otsego) and help with ongoing district events and sponsorships. I give back to the community with both my time and the money I earn. This year I have donated over $5k to the district to help feed kids, and provide financial assistance to areas that need it (golf/basketball needs, athletics trainer needs).
