How long have you been a member of EDAM? 1 year

What do you find valuable about belonging to EDAM?
The networking has been tremendous. From conferences, to happy hours, I'm sure to interact with someone passionate about the economic development field. The members of EDAM have proven to be valuable resources as I learn more about this line of work.

What is something you are passionate about or a hobby you really enjoy?
All things craft beer. I have been checking in beers on Untappd since 2015 and have checked in almost 4,000 unique beers. My wife and I have also brewed our own beer.

Share an interesting fact about yourself that few of your fellow EDAM members may know.
I became a father of twin boys in September with my high school sweetheart.

What's the greatest advice a mentor has given you?
Don't put it down; put it away. It has helped me keep things tidy!

What was the best concert you've ever attended? What's a bucket list concert for you?
Hella Mega Tour at Target Field featuring Weezer, Fall Out Boy, and Green Day. It was a lineup of all my middle school jams in the cool fall air at Target Field. Bucket list: I would have loved to see Avicii.

When your name is called for karaoke, what song do you pick?
These Eyes by The Guess Who. Thanks to Michael Cera in Superbad.
