I am a Hoosier. I was born and raised here in our great state. I have always been in the people business, starting with my first job as a paperboy for the old Indianapolis evening news and continuing through the years in customer-facing positions. I have been a business owner and a Cub Scout pack leader. I have always been one to speak his mind and stand up for what I feel is right. I am a leader, collaborator, and problem solver. Once I take on a task, I will do whatever is needed to get the job done. I am on organization boards and volunteer my time for many good causes.
