Independent Alum of the Day

I am from Adrian, Michigan and I graduated from Siena Heights University with my bachelor's degree in 2001, and my master's degree in 2008.  I also earned an MBA from the University of Notre Dame in 2012.  My wife Amber also holds bachelor's and master's degrees from Siena Heights University.  We have been married for 10 years and have a 1 year old son named Patrick James.

I work for Southern Wine & Spirits, the largest alcoholic beverage distribution company in the United States as an area manager.  My role entails working to develop my team of sales consultants to improve their ability to continually capture market share for our supplier partners.

My motivation

I'm motivated by a desire to continually improve myself, and using my talents to help others.

My latest accomplishments

My wife and I have successfully navigated our first year as parents.

Next big goal

I would like to earn a position near Adrian which would allow me to continue to support my family, but also be closer to home.

Why is choosing your own path important?

Choosing your own path helps ensure that you don't end up in a position that you view as a job instead of a career.

Favorite place on campus

Trinity Gardens where I proposed to my wife Amber.
