If you knew that together you and I could change the trajectory of an at-risk or abused child's life, would you help me?
I'm super excited to be campaigning as a 'Shoe Guy' in the Olive Crest 2016 Wine, Women & Shoes fundraiser! I'm asking for your help now to make me the 'King of Sole' by donating to help kids through my campaign!
What's my backstory and why am I involved?
I'm a Montana native, most comfortable on a ranch or fishing out of my drift boat. I was a latchkey kid with loving parents who taught me to help people. We moved alot and they split up when I was a teenager. Looking back, I was a hot mess! Why am I here? I had God's hand shaping me he put plenty of people in my corner.
Its a different story for thousands of kids in the Seattle area without parents. Without love. Without shelter. Without safety. With our help they have hope. It means so much to have you as my partner in their corner!
In my day job since 2013, I'm the Chief Printing Officer of Minuteman Press of Redmond. I work for my team and they produce data and graphics driven print marketing and communciations including the print for our 3rd Seattle Wine Women & Shoes event!
I love my wife Traci and our 3 teenagers (I love my parents too!), our black lab, the game of baseball (alter ego moment...I was the Mariner's bullpen catcher back in the 90s), fishing, coaching kids, good red wine, thick black coffee, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and all of the friends I met working at Microsoft and within various communities in Seattle!
Thanks for your support, its for the kids!
