The two most important days of your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.
The question I ask the most is, “Why?” From my perspective, everything comes back to purpose. If you don’t have one, you get lost. Part of my purpose is to be a connector of people, places, and ideas, which means I’m an enthusiastic party planner, traveler, and lunch dater.
I’m fascinated by diverse cultures and ways of life. I believe in exploring and asking good questions, because the more different perspectives we can understand the better we can live. Also, how else are you going to find the best local food and drink in a new city?
I’m also passionate about communication—it’s the difference between good relationships and bad ones, between successful firms and those that don’t make it past start-up. Every day, I get to help our clients communicate better, build stronger relationships, go farther, and make a bigger impact. I love living in my sweet spot.
As an adopted Michigander and aspiring avid traveler, I’m glad to have Grand Rapids as a beautiful home base. When I’m home, I have a hard time sitting still though. You can most often find me exploring a new hobby, sport, food, or music genre. After all, life is an adventure if we make it one.
Great things never came from comfort zones.
