I’ve lived my entire life in Steuben County Indiana. I graduated from high school from Prairie Heights. My wife is now a first-grade teacher there and both of my kids attend high school at Praire Heights. Next, I attended Tri-State University receiving a degree in computer science. I then worked for a global automotive company Cooper Standard Automotive for 20 years. My experiences with Cooper allowed me the opportunity to work in a lot of different environments with a lot of different technologies. I was able to travel all over the world and work with so many great people. That exposed me to more things than a kid from a small town in Northeast Indiana could have ever imagined.  

In my free time I’ve worked a lot with local youth sports organizations. Working with young people is one of the most rewarding things I’ve done. I’ve assisted with youth soccer, basketball, baseball, softball and various other activities. 

I’m very excited about the opportunity Trine has given me. I look forward to taking the experiences I have working in the industry and bringing them back to the talented young people that have chosen Trine.
