On a personal note

I founded WSC in 2007 to pursue a simple premise: provide personalized service, sustainable solutions and lasting value to the communities we serve. This mission continues to drive WSC’s growth and prosperity, and our outstanding team aspires to add value in everything we do.

I am a firm believer in the philosophy that people come first, and I feel extraordinarily fortunate to work with such a bright, energetic and talented team of professionals. The WSC team includes our employees, clients, regulators and consultant partners, and we routinely collaborate to deliver projects that not only exceed our clients’ expectations, but move their organizations forward. My job is to do everything I can to help my teams succeed. And at the end of the day, it always comes back to the value and importance of the relationships that we work to build and reinforce through trust, commitment and shared accomplishment.

I am a dedicated husband and proud father of four incredible children. My favorite pastime is taking my family on adventures, whether we are hiking, swimming, camping or exploring our world. I am an avid snowboarder, and enjoy fishing, water sports and mountain biking.
