Tell us about yourself!
I live in Monona with my wife, Keisha, and our three children: Shea, Irie, and Lexi. Between work and family there isn’t too much free time! With the free time I have I enjoy hunting, fishing, and just being outdoors.
Why did you start serving the Foundation board?
I was recruited to the board by Andy Reimer. Andy told me that the board was a good cause, all of the work and funds stayed local, and it was a very rewarding board to serve on. He was correct!
What inspires you to keep serving?
It is nice to see funds stay local, support the development of local projects and be a part of helping Clayton County continue to thrive.
The Freedom Rock is the most memorable project we've supported. I drive past it at least twice a day, some days more, and it is a constant reminder to me of what we are working toward with a thriving community and county!
