Meeting the woman who would become my wife.

What would most people be surprised to learn about you?

I’ve learned how to apply first aid for a venomous snake bite.

What’s the biggest issue facing the Corridor, and why?

What are your passions outside of the workplace?

Architecture, biking, canoeing, Iowa Valley Habitat for Humanity volunteering, workplace learning, STEAM, travel and dinner with good friends.

What should people know about your generation in the workplace?

Automation will take away many of the current available jobs, so it’s important that employers be clear about what problems they are trying to solve through their work. We should be thinking of the actions we are taking to make positive change.

What do you want to accomplish by the time you are 50?

It would be amazing to team up with a school district, community college, university, major employers and developers to design a co-housing/education project.
