Nearly three years ago I had to shut down my business that I poured my heart and soul into for eight years. That was the hardest day of my life and in many ways I have never fully recovered - but today was not that day! This year I set a goal to complete the @spartanrace#trifecta. Last week I, along with @ghunt6, @ericoleson76, and Todd Cockrell accomplished that goal by completing the Spartan Beast - 12 + BRUTAL miles with insane elevation gains and 25 obstacles. I started the race with nine friends but intentionally ran almost the entire race solo. It took every ounce of strength and will power that I could summon to tackle some of those hills and obstacles - but I did it. My time is nothing to brag about but I used every minute on the course reflecting over the past few years. There were three times that I let the tears flow. Yes, I cried and it felt great. This was not due to lack of strength or physical endurance but because I was overcome by extreme emotion. Emotions that I have never dealt with until now. I was physically, mentally and emotionally exhausted but I felt better at that moment than I have felt in a long, long time. I am free. To conclude this over-dramatized narrative of my day I will leave you with a quote from the starting line of the race: "The day may come when the courage of Sparta fails. Today will not be that day! Who am I? I am Spartan. Who am I? I AM FREAKING SPARTAN!!! Aroo, aroo, #AROO !"

Jesus is the Son of God, our Savior and Redeemer. Because of Him, death is not the end, and life takes on new meaning. We can change, we can start over—and we can live again with God. This Easter, celebrate His life and discover all that’s possible because of Him.

Story
Tagline
sourcing and engaging corporate talent is kind of my thing.
Introduction
I'm a well-rounded entrepreneur and business professional. I thrive on finding new ways to complete ordinary tasks in order to achieve extraordinary results. I embrace technology to the extreme while maintaining the importance, reality and power of the customer/client/employee relationship. Marketing, sales, management, training and development - It's all about making a connection, communication, earning respect and fulfilling commitments. My professional experience has provided me with the opportunity to develop in all of these areas and for that I am grateful.
