How do I help our clients live a richer life?
As vice president of technology, my role is to help improve operational efficiencies through the use of technology, as well as drive the IT vision and strategy at Brighton Jones. As our organization continues to grow, I ensure that we have the proper policies and tools in place to protect and secure our customer’s data. Having come from a management consulting background, I see my “clients” as internal Brighton Jones employees and our customers. With this perspective, I work closely with our client service teams to help them provide the best customer experience.

How do I spend my time outside of Brighton Jones?
When not in the office, most of my time is spent with my wife and a very energetic toddler. I also love driving, riding, or racing anything with a motor and two or four wheels. My trusty steed is my 800GS, which I commute on year-round and has accompanied me on multiple cross-country trips. I also enjoy training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu whenever I can. I enjoy motorcycles and jiu-jitsu due to the mental aspect, as well as the beauty that appears through the proper technique.
