I was born and raised in small-town Iowa to a large family. I have five sisters (don’t feel too bad for me) who are some of the best people I’ve ever known, although they picked on me quite a bit. I’ve been in advertising since signing my first client at 16 and I’ve never looked back. I’ve owned and operated a handful of different companies – two separate digital ad agencies, a tourism magazine and a couple other long shots that didn’t pan out but taught me more than I could have ever imagined. I’m extremely active and love physical activity – especially biking, skiing and running. I have a daughter, Arizona, who was born August 2018 and it’s brought me a whole new set of challenges, but I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be and now have a love I never thought possible.

I’m working to bring back the Des Moines Weather Beacon because it represents many great memories with my dad, who would always quiz us on the colors when we drove by as kids.
