I was born and raised in the Twin Cities, married my high school sweetheart, and been on an amazing adventure for many years now. I have a passion for a variety of pursuits including photography, snowmobiling, rock climbing, and exploring the National Parks. I am most passionate about my wife and three kids, which bring me a lot of joy and a few tears. I have a tendency to tell lots of stories and share lots of pictures about my family and my adventures. Sometimes I even bust out an old American Express story or two from my time there.
Speaking of adventure, I decided to leave my cushy job at American Express to pursue my own path, leading a few small businesses, and ultimately landed at Tightrope in 2013. Here I get to work with an incredibly talented group of people in a very dynamic and fast changing industry. I enjoy building partnerships with world-class companies and shaping our strategy around delivering outstanding customer value on the way to winning our key markets. I love seeing the opportunity in the midst of the challenge and uncovering the greatness that lies within each person I have the pleasure to work with inside or outside the walls of “the Rope.”
Tightrope Media Systems offers a unique company culture and work environment that is friendly, flexible, and fun. Our team values self-starters, communal input, healthy work/life balance, and positive attitudes in the face of a challenge. If this sounds like you, you'd probably make an excellent addition to our team!
