How long have you been a GLI Ambassador? Approx. 1 year

What is your favorite part about being a GLI Ambassador? Helping connect people to one another and being in touch with our great city and its amazing business community

What value does your company derive from investing in GLI? We are much more in tune with what is happening around Louisville by helping and supporting GLI. By doing so, it also helps build our own brand. Our involvement is essential for our continued growth.


What’s the best investment you’ve ever made? My Church, thanks to my investment in Southeast Christian. I am a better husband, father and person overall.

Outside the office, what do you like to do for fun? I play on the worship team at my Church, Southeast Christian. I am also in an active classic rock cover band called Moondance and a duo called THE FAB2 (covering a lot of Beatles music as well as lots of other artists.  In addition, I squeeze in lots of tennis matches whenever I can find the time.

Cats or Cards? Cards! I used to be all about the Cats… however, when I moved to Louisville, I loved the city so much that it just didn’t make sense to not pull for the Cards.

If you could have dinner with anyone dead or alive, who would you choose? My father. I miss him so much. I will schedule a nice sit down dinner with him when I join him in heaven. He was the best man I ever met.
