About me

I’m a Colorado native who moved out to California to go to the University of Southern California and then worked in the television industry for 11 years. My wife Sandy and I met on a red carpet in Hollywood; we got married, had three kids and decided to bring them back to Colorado for a better outdoor, healthy lifestyle. 

Throughout my career, I’ve been a voice-over director, junior talent manager, audio technician, director of photography, graphic designer, video editor, executive producer and creative director. Some of the notable networks we’ve been involved with are E!, Discovery, NBCUniversal, Food Network, Cooking Channel, TLC, Style Network and G4. 

My work

I’m currently the owner and creative director for Versatility Creative. I have the honor of helping companies and individuals tell their story through visual media and artistic expression. We’ve been able to help over 95 companies in the Castle Rock area. In helping a company with their brand and story, we get to do something we love every day. 

Joining the Chamber

We joined the Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce when we launched Versatility in 2012. We first joined to be part of the business community and family of Castle Rock.  There’s always been a passion to be involved and to impact the environment around me, and that quickly grew into joining the Chamber Board of Directors and Government Interest Committee. Having such a diverse background and company profile, I quickly realized the unique perspective I bring to our business community and wanted to use this to further the reach and professionalism of the chamber.

Becoming chairman

As chairman of the board, I am lucky enough to have a full year to best impact the chamber and our business community. I officially took the position on in April of 2018. I look forward to bringing my unique media and business background to help promote different perspectives on new and old policies, procedures and programs. I believe our chamber is on the forefront in so many areas, and there are always new ways to approach an ever-changing business community — especially in Castle Rock’s rapidly changing environment. A major goal of mine will be reaching those businesses who are no longer part of the chamber, or who have not yet partnered with the chamber, so that I can find new and inventive ways to reinvigorate those leaders.

My advice

If you’re doing good work, care about the people you’re helping and have a bit of business sense, then you’ve got a good angle to work. Art will always bring on critics, but your perseverance and longevity will tell your ultimate story.
