What inspired you to pursue a career in finance?

Pursuing finance was a logical path for me in the beginning because I loved working with data and numbers. Along the way I had a lot of great mentors who encouraged me to continue learning and expanding my knowledge of the field. In general, I think it offers a unique window into an organization's inner-workings, and I find that fascinating.

Why NatureBridge?

I first read about NatureBridge in Outside Magazine and felt a connection to the mission. It was at a point in my career when I was looking for an organization whose values I align with, and NatureBridge felt like it could be a perfect fit. Luckily, it just so happened that NatureBridge needed a Financial Analyst at the time.

I am excited, grateful and humbled to be the next CFO of NatureBridge, an incredible organization driven by an inspiring mission and team.

Favorite national park or outdoor space?

Arches and Canyonlands National Parks near Moab, Utah. I also love Midwest farmland because it reminds me of my childhood.

When you're not crunching numbers in the office what are you doing?

Probably hanging out with my amazing wife. We are expecting a baby in August, so I'm really looking forward to being a father and spending time with my son.  I also enjoy watching documentaries, reading, woodworking and being outside.

What about this opportunity are you most excited about?

Working with and learning from incredible people across all of NatureBridge. I feel truly fortunate for the opportunity to be on the same team with such smart, passionate individuals. With the support of our talented and hard-working finance and IT staff and the entire NatureBridge team, I look forward to leading this charge as CFO in preparation and anticipation for what lies ahead.
