I grew up in Dunlap, Iowa and graduated from Boyer Valley High School in 1995. I was awarded a full scholarship to attend UNI and graduated with a degree in Computer Science. After graduation I worked at a publishing company developing their ecommerce platform. Two years later I went to work at an online employee benefits enrollment company. After a year and a half the bug bit me and I needed to have my own company.
I started Internet Solver in 2002 and in the next decade grew it to a 25 employee company with three offices in two states. My staff and I were able to change the Internet and Telephone market in Des Moines. In 2013 I sold my company to Alliance Technologies and went to work first in the IT Managed Services area and then later as part of Alliance Connect.
After two years the bug bit me again and I left to pursue the ideas I’d wanted to in the past but didn’t have time for.
Professionally I’ve been purchasing, renovating, and renting or selling homes, growing my home cleaning and maintenance company, and helping businesses determine how to leverage real estate and technology.
Personally I’ve been traveling more and spending time with my wife and children.
Longer term I will be continuing to purchase additional rental properties, growing my consulting practice, and providing funding and mentorship for growing companies.
