I grew up in Morgan, Utah and have been a resident of Utah for most of my life. I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and Marketing from Southern Utah University. While there, I met my wonderful wife and we were married a couple months before graduation. We have been married for over 12 years now and have 5 children. I worked in banking and managed a regional office for the Division of Wildlife resources before deciding to return to school.
I earned a dual degree MBA + Masers of Science in Information Technology at Bentley University in Waltham, Massachusetts. Since 2010 I have been employed at the University of Utah working on business systems for Facilities Operations. I am currently working on smart energy systems with the goal of reducing energy consumption on campus by 20% in the next 5 years.
I love outdoor activities and sports. I am an assistant scoutmaster for my neighborhood’s Boy Scouts of America troop. I love gardening and I use public transportation to get to work.
