Who am I? I’m the kind of guy you can depend on to get the job done. I’m the kind of guy who isn’t afraid to ask questions, to take risks, and take responsibility for my actions. I’ve made mistakes, and unfortunate things have happened to me, but it has never gotten me down. As a self-styled “silver lining man,” I always seek to find the positives of any circumstance, and to learn the lessons that can sometimes only be taught through failure.

I’m no stranger to hardship and difficulty, and my experience at both the Indiana Academy and Purdue, as well my short venture as a door-to-door salesman will attest to this. No matter the difficulty presented, however, my commitment was never in doubt.

Growing up on a farm in Indiana taught me many things, not least of which was to know and be confident in my abilities. The kind of confidence that comes only when you’ve been through the fire, when you’ve had to work 16 hours a day, when its’ up to you to make sure the job is done right every time, even though you’re mentally and physically exhausted. This confidence, earned through hard work, as well as my varied capabilities and unwavering commitment make me the kind of guy that you want to hire.
