About Me

My goal of owning and operating a small business began on the golf course. As a youth I worked as a caddy (later receiving an Evans Scholarship) and had the good fortune to carry the clubs of many successful small business owners. Those interactions profoundly influenced my career aspirations and sparked my interest in small business ownership. The Michigan Purchase is the means for me to chase that dream.

Prior to starting The Michigan Purchase I worked as a management consultant at KPMG in their Procurement and Business Services practice. My clients and projects spanned a wide range of industries, from telecommunications to pharmaceuticals, energy/utilities, and veterinary care. My main area of focus was back office strategy, with an emphasis on IT organizations.

I received an MBA and BSE in Industrial and Operations Engineering from the University of Michigan. Before attending business school, I worked in Frankfurt, Germany, as a database programmer and software consultant for Urban Science.

I grew up in Ferndale, Michigan, and am a proud graduate of Ferndale High School. I currently reside in Michigan with my wife Chrissy and our daughter Eloise.
