Professional Profile

  • Served on City Council since January 2016

  • Also serve as a board member of the Wabash County Solid Waste Management District, as Treasurer of the Wabash Elementary Schools PTO, as Secretary of Junior Achievement serving Greater Wabash, and as Alumni Ambassador for Indiana Wesleyan University.

  • Since graduating from Wabash High School, I have spent my entire professional career in the non-profit sector including serving with the American Red Cross and now the Wabash County Museum. I hold a Master of Public Administration degree with a specialty in Non-Profit Leadership and a Bachelor of Science in Business Management degree with a specialty in Human Resources, both from Indiana Wesleyan University.  I have also had the honor of serving on numerous regional and national leadership panels and leading training seminars for non-profit organizations and associations. 

  • My wife, Sylvia, and I were married in 2003 and have welcomed three children (Haylee, Hayden, and Haynes) to our family. As a family, we enjoy walking through our neighborhood and on the Wabash Riverwalk, where you will frequently find us enjoying ice cream from White Rock Recreation.  Personally, our family advocates for Riley Children’s Hospital (Haylee is a Riley Kid) and Hospice Care and Rights for aging adults.  We are avid Fort Wayne Komets Hockey fans and our favorite vacation spot is West Baden Springs in Southern Indiana.

  • Walt Disney has a lot of great quotes but I often taken inspiration from this – “We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”  In all aspects of life, including serving on Wabash City Council, it is important that we are always curious and willing to pursue new and innovative ways to improve the quality of life for the residents of this great city.
