Leadership Experience

I managed offices from dental to non-profit to musical bands. I learned basic leadership in the Marines where I served as  Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Defense Specialist where my main duties were to manage a large warehouse of protective gear and then teach NBC defense classes to Marines and other government contractors. After getting my bachelors in Organizational Management I decided to start my own business as a solo entertainer and was able to quit my day job in 2011. Since then I have helped others start successful businesses and served as a mentor to those looking to make music and arts a viable career choice. Aligning with my focus of helping other become successful, I am happy to be working with Rural Dynamics Inc. and serving as Project Manager for the AmeriCorps VISTA program to be a part of the change I would like to see in Montana.

How I Want to Participate in PowerHouse

I would like to network with other professionals across the state and foster strong relationships with like-minded change makers.
