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 170+ 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.
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. Lately I've been focused on endurance gravel and MTB events. I've found that Training has given me year-round focus and an inspiring community.
