Here's a little more about me.
I'm Senior Director of Innovation at Life Time in Minneapolis, where I lead the Life Time Labs team. I'm focused on the fitness club of the future, assessing technologies and trends that can be implemented in the next 2-3 years. We quickly build proof-of-concepts to pilot in our clubs, measure the impact on operations and the member experience, and evaluate the results to apply across Life Time’s 160+ locations.
I grew up in Iowa and graduated from Iowa State University with a degree in Management Information Systems. My goal after graduation was to find a job that would take me far from the Midwest, leading me to California and my first job at Intel as a software developer. In the intervening years I've done some consulting, moved back to the Midwest, earned an MBA, and led teams at Dow Jones, Thomson Reuters and Bloom Health, a health insurance start-up.
I've been married to a wonderful woman for over 20 years. We have two beautiful kids and a delightful goldendoodle. I don't know how I got so lucky.
In 2010 my brother suggested we try triathlon and I was immediately hooked. Things escalated quickly and in 2013 I completed my first Half Ironman and first marathon. In 2017 I completed my first full Ironman. I've found that Training has given me year-round focus and an inspiring community. Sometimes I'm 12-years-old at heart: If you ask me if I want to go ride bikes, the answer will always be "Yes!".
