Professional Summary

I began my career as on Active Duty in the United States Army (2006-2011).  I spent nearly five years as a Judge Advocate General (attorney), an experience that was highlighted by a deployment to Iraq in 2008.  I also spent time practicing as a Tax Attorney, Contract & Fiscal Law Attorney, Administrative Attorney and completed my tenure in the Army as a prosecutor.  

Over the past 8 years, while with Ryan Companies (2011 - 2015) followed by Mortenson Development, Inc. (2015 - 2019), I supported and then led a number of developments across the Twin Cities and Greater Minnesota.  The seminal achievement of my development career was leading the development of One Discovery Square, the first phase of a Life Science district in Rochester, Minnesota, which was done in collaboration with Mayo Clinic, the University of Minnesota Rochester, Epic Medical Records, and a variety of other commercial partners.  The District is described as the economic engine of the Destination Medical Center, a $585M public-private partnership -- the largest such partnership in Minnesota's history.

I employ a people-first, servant-leader approach. I believe in the value of collaboration and strong teams, in peer accountability, and in the power of leveraging insight to the benefit of our client's businesses.


In 2018, I was named to the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal's 40 Under 40 List and to a list of 100 Rising Stars across the country by the Business Journals.

In 2016, I was one of ten professionals selected to represent Minneapolis-St Paul at the Young American Leaders Program.

In 2009, I received the Bronze Star commendation at the conclusion of my deployment in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
