Principal | COO
I co-own MJMeetings with my wife, Missy.
I’m the utility player on the team. My roles and responsibilities include: Brand Ambassador, Engagement Concierge, Sales, Account Management, Consulting, Accounting, IT, Website, and whatever else needs to get done for the business.
We started this business because we wanted to build something we could be proud of that would give us the freedom to put our expertise to work…on our own terms.
Our culture is one of transparency and a commitment to doing the right thing every time.
I’ve always told Missy that she’s the Patrick Mahomes (GO CHIEFS!) of Meeting Planning. My job is “every other position on the field” and to do everything in my power to free her up to do what she does best…put on incredible meetings and events for our clients.

Ⓜ The hardest thing about perspective is keeping it.
Ⓜ Ignoring your instincts is the quickest path to regret.
Ⓜ Get up early. The sunrise is waiting for you.
Ⓜ You don’t have to do it like everyone else does. That’s for sheep. Be a lion.
Ⓜ Listen to the voice in your head telling you to reach out to people who’ve been on your mind. There’s magic in those moments.
