Philanthropy

I have been a strong advocate for pet shelters, small business, and cybersecurity. I have been blessed with the opportunity to help found two 501c organizations. I have served on a number of boards and advisory committees including Habitat for Humanity, community groups, residential boards, and pet shelters.

The Phoenix metro area used to have three different chapters, and philosophies, for building affordable housing. This presented a significant waste in organizational and operational overhead. I was happy to support the merging of these into a single entity. It eliminated my board position, but many more families now have homes as a result.
