  • What attracted you to Slalom?
    There is an entrepreneurial spirit and culture that is unique to Slalom Los Angeles that I love. I also get to spend time with my family every day, which is a rarity in consulting. My wife and I just had a baby girl, Everly.
  • What makes a great consultant?
    Great consultants are inspired by the same goals as their clients and are able to define and redefine their role as they work towards these shared goals. They’re also fun to work with.
  • What’s your favorite part of your job?
    The favorite part of my job is working with amazing clients. One of my current clients is in the fitness industry. Our executive sponsor finds time around her busy schedule to lead a “boot camp” style workout class every morning.
  • What was your first job?
    I pursued a career as a professional hockey referee until I was 25 years old. Learning “game management” for hockey is surprisingly applicable for consulting work.
  • Hobbies
    I love everything Southern California has to offer. Beaches, cycling, golf, wine, amazing food, and endless great getaway destinations within driving distance.
