Independent Certified Coach, Trainer and Speaker with The John Maxwell Team, aspiring author, husband, father, and follower of Jesus Christ
Helping you pursue YOUR potential and purpose is my life mission! I often ask myself, “Are people more passionately, holding nothing back, all-in with their purpose and developing their potential because of my presence in their life?” Life’s too short not to passionately pursue your potential and purpose!
I lived for years just going through the motions, depressed and hiding in plain sight. We all drift towards living without purpose or passion; that is NO WAY to live life! Take advantage of every opportunity to grow!
I offer online leadership classes and training for managers, business owners, leaders, and individuals. I also offer personal growth and group coaching. I aim to help you develop personally and professionally in all I do!
Let's discuss how I can add value to you, your group or your company and employees TODAY!
Don’t be disappointed about where you are, think positively about where you are going!

I was first introduced to a book by John Maxwell called “Leading from the Lockers” in High School. As elected President of National Honors Society in my high school I used John’s materials to teach and train my cabinet and members while leading meetings, giving a vision for the organization, and creating service opportunities in our community.
In 2012, I became a Founding and Certified Member of the John Maxwell Team. I was trained in coaching, speaking, and leadership by John Maxwell and his staff. As a hobby, I led a few mastermind leadership training groups for various organizations in Fargo-Moorhead.
For eight years I was the children's pastor at Prairie Heights Community Church in Fargo, ND. My job was to provide world-class environments for children to learn about faith and build friendships. My responsibility grew from overseeing 60 children and 30 volunteers in 2009 to over 400 children, 225 volunteers (including 16 volunteer leaders I recruited), and 3 staff in 2017. Other responsibilities include: building teams, recruiting volunteers, training volunteers, and overseeing curriculum development.
My personal health and family life had been out of balance for years, but it finally caught up with me in 2018. I had been leading others but ignoring the unhealthy habits in my own life. It forced me to resign from a job I loved and I was faced with the possibility of losing my wife and children. I finally admitted I had a problem and sought out the help I needed from Hopequest Ministry Group. While I'm not fixed, I'm a happier, healthier version of myself committed to growing each day and being at peace with my savior, Jesus Christ. My desire is to live in authentic community and add value to the people and companies God brings my way.
In fall of 2018, I became Campus Director of Faith Corp Lincoln Street Campus. I began overseeing 3 daycare centers with 90 children and 30 staff. It became 4 centers with 118 children and over 40 staff when I left in January 2020. My responsibilities included: leading a management team of four Site Leaders, addressing parent concerns, hiring, firing, and scheduling staff, and assisting in planning two all company staff workshop days.
