I am a consultant, writer, and biker - and live with my wife in Denver, CO.
Since 2014, I have worked with foundations, nonprofits, businesses, and other organizations to create compelling written and digital content, conduct research that shapes strategy, and distill complex information into clear stories that resonate. I have also partnered with the Center for Evaluation Innovation as a Senior Consultant, and been a Contributing Writer for 303Cycling.
Previously, I served as the Senior Program Officer at The Colorado Trust, where I oversaw $20 million in grant programs primarily focused on policy and advocacy, public engagement, and capacity building. Prior to that, I was the Communications Director for the Colorado Center on Law and Policy and Colorado Fiscal Policy Institute. I have held a number of key roles in local, state and national political campaigns, including working with two governors, Congressional offices, and a national campaign committee - including as a campaign manager, communications director, press secretary, policy analyst, and speechwriter.
I was born and raised in Indiana, and graduated from Notre Dame. Following stints in Washington, DC, Indianapolis, and New Mexico, I have lived in Colorado for nearly 15 years.
Outside of work, I like biking, running, hiking, camping, standup paddleboarding, and other humbling outdoor pursuits. I’ve competed in - er, at least completed - several endurance events, including the Breck Epic, Pikes Peak Ascent, Mt. Evans Hill Climb, and assorted other bike races, triathlons, and trail races.
I’m always looking to expand the types of individuals and organizations I work with, so please don’t hesitate to get in contact if you have a project need, a referral in mind, or just have questions to learn more.
