Services & Projects
Iowa Gravel Series
Started in 2020 with the Glenwood Gravel Grinder, I've helped produce a series of gravel bicycle races across the state of Iowa with the goal to promote fitness, adventure, and encourage Iowans to get on a bike and explore their state.
Loess Hills Makerspace
I am one of the board of directors for the Loess Hills Makerspace, a nonprofit community program that provides tools and resources for building and crafting. Classes are offered and custom woodworking services are provided by local retirees.
While working at Google as part of the Cloud team's executive briefing office and in conjunction with the Office of the CTO, I worked with hundreds of companies to develop unique innovation strategies that produced measurable results. I've since made the workshop available through a hands on learning experience. Your leadership team can start to unlock a set of shared values and processes that enable innovation in any environment.
Working with youth and nonprofits is something I enjoy. My local youth group had run a flag posting fundraiser and was looking to improve their operations. I worked with the leadership team to streamline the service project and provide online billing. I also managed support and logistic channels. It's was a great project that helped local youth attend summer camps with little or no financial impact on families.
In 2021 I arranged for the program to be purchased by BSA Scout Troop 243 where it continues to support youth camps and events.
