ABOUT ME

In a nutshell.

I’m a sales guy through and through. I would consider myself an opportunistic leader with a demonstrated history of executing and providing value for businesses through effective leadership. I believe sales is the lifeblood of every business strategy. The keys to high-performing sales teams are a combination of the right talent and the EQ to keep them around. My goal is to empower business leaders by sharing the knowledge I’ve gained as an entrepreneur, investor, and award-winning procurement expert.

I am a retired college baseball player and with a Bachelor’s Degree focused in Economics & Finance from McKendree University. I am also a Kansas City Chiefs and Royals fan.

MY STORY

Ever since I was a little boy I was either cutting grass, playing sports or slinging lemonade at my lemonade stand. Sales and building relationships kind of just always made sense to me. I knew when I grew up “which I haven’t yet” that I wanted to be able to control my own destiny.  Jumping ahead to 2012, I fell into what is now commonly called “the group purchasing space.” I was tapped to turn my current organization around and inspire new growth and innovation. Present-day, what is now called “Una.com,” (which represents a series of other brands) is an actual growing brand and business that serves its 10k+ members in very meaningful ways. I am extremely proud of what the Una team has accomplished and I know there is a lot more growth in store.

At the same time Una was growing, I was building a family too. I have been married for just under 5 years and I have two beautiful children; a boy, and a girl. It’s cliche but through a series of circumstances, this opportunity found me and I hope to continue to make the most of it. I know there is much more to achieve and we are just getting started. I hope to use my talents and lessons learned from past failure and success to eventually launch new brands and create new opportunities for others.
