What Fuel Means to Me:
Fuel Cincinnati is all about opportunities.  We provide an opportunity for Cincinnati’s brightest, young minds to improve their city by removing the biggest obstacle to their success: funding.  My favorite thing about being part of Fuel is seeing those opportunities become realities.

Why I’m Involved in Fuel Cincinnati:
I love living in Cincinnati and want the city to realize its full potential. There are plenty of great ideas out there to improve the place we live. I’m involved with Fuel because I want to be part of breaking down the barriers that prevent great ideas from becoming realities.

Why You Should Bring Your Idea to Us:
This is an exciting group which truly cares about its mission. We not only provide funding but we also have a vast network of resources to help your idea realize its full potential.

Interesting, Fun Fact about Me:
I’m a bit of a jack of all trades. I get bored easily, so I dabble in everything from playing the guitar to woodworking to home brewing beer.

What I’m Excited About in 2015:
Our first child was born in July of 2013. I look forward to watching him grow up and experiencing all of his milestones with him for years to come!
