I moved to Utah in the mid 80’s to attend graduate school in computer graphics. We formed a company that developed and marketed computer aided manufacturing software around the world. I served as president of that company for 19 years. During this time I also returned to school to get my MBA. This company was purchased by the British company Delcam in 2003 and in 2014 Delcam was purchased by the US company Autodesk. After working at Autodesk for a couple of years I retired.
On the personal side I am married and have two grown children. I have been an avid bike rider since coming to Utah. I humbly participated in local mountain bike races in my 40s and biked to work. I was involved it’s the Boys and Girls Club here in Salt Lake for over 20 years as a coach, Board member and fundraiser. I have also served on the capital campaign for Wasatch Community Gardens. I’m a fan of the Bicycle Collective because I like organizations that focus on making an impact on the local community. I’m also a big fan of green initiatives and vocational training.
