Why I Wanted to Serve on the Alumni Council:

I have been involved with the college in many forms since graduation, and joining the Alumni Council is my next step to give back just a little of what Grinnell has given me over the years.

A Quote I Like:

“A society grows great when old men plant trees in whose shade they know they shall never sit.”

―Old Jewish proverb

A Little Bit About Me:

Much of my career has been spent working in the clean energy arena, an area I discovered when I took a 200-level chemistry class at Grinnell. Over the last 5 years, my focus has been the growth of a startup company I co-founded providing Backup Power-as-a-Service to commercial and industrial energy consumers.

Other Alumni Involvement: Class Fund Director, Reunion Planning Committee, GRASP Volunteer
