Where are you from?How did you end up in Louisville?

Born & raised Louisvillian!

Tell us about your career and how you got here.

I graduated from PRP HS in 1982. Joined the Army as a Tanker and completed my Service in 1986. I went to college at Spencerian then I began my career in Sales in 1989, came to this company (now Integrity One Technologies) in 1987. I serve as the Regional Sales Manager for Southern Indiana & throughout Central Kentucky.

What’s the coolest thing you’ve been involved with during your career so far?

Moving our Office to Main Street in Downtown Louisville. I was able to move our company to one of the most interesting and practical locations in the city that drives the energy of our company. On a side note I even assisted in the design of our space at the Ice House. It was amazing to see the “blank space” transform into a state of the art showroom and sales space while maintaining the history of the Ice House.

What got you involved with Friends of the Waterfront?

I have been a fan of Downtown Louisville since I was a kid. Diane Nelson, a founder of FOTW first made me aware of the board. When the opportunity to join arose I was glad to take advantage of it.

What is your role with FOTW?

I have served as a board member, Vice President & President of the board. Today I serve as a member of the Advisory Board.

What other causes are you passionate about?

Anything Louisville or Kentucky!

What do you do around town for fun?

Louisville is such a great to socialize so we take full advantage. My wife & I love the local food & drink scene and can frequently be seen at Doc Crows, Proof, Garage Bar, Butchertown Grocery, etc.

What are your favorite events in Louisville?

Oaks & Derby (of course), Waterfront Wednesday, Trolley Hops, Local Art Fairs

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

Don’t take advice from people that are more screwed up than you are.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

My wife and I would like to have a “lake place” in Downtown Louisville and be closer to the city we love.
