POSITION: Operations Committee

My wife and I just moved back from New York City to Cincinnati, where we both grew up. I attended McNicholas High School, then graduated from OSU. I’ve spent my whole career in banking, but recently started at Great American in their annuity division. I’m excited to be back in town.

What Fuel Means to Me:
Fuel presents an opportunity to provide financial means and leadership for people who are working to improve the communities of Cincinnati.

Why I’m Involved in Fuel Cincinnati:
There are many ways to volunteer or give back to a community, and Fuel allows me to work with others who want to provide the tools and resources to make not-for-profit ideas realities.

Why You Should Bring Your Idea to Us:
This group is a collection of diverse, talented and motivated individuals excited to make Cincinnati better today and into the future.

Interesting, Fun Fact about Me:
My sister and I grew up eating ketchup on our French toast because my parents are immigrants and never understood why you put syrup on eggs and bread. But not to worry: My wife has since straightened me out.

What I’m Excited About in 2015:
Cincinnati has changed so much in the last few years, for the better, and I can’t wait to see what new ideas come to Fuel this year.
