I consider myself a competitive, motivated, and intentionally positive person. I think other people just consider me slightly off, but maybe in that endearing way?
Personally, I have the honor of being a husband to my wife Rachel and a father to my son Carson and daughters Ella and Avery. For me, having my family behind me and supporting me has really shaped who I am and what my priorities are—well, they and my bikes.
Professionally, I love the process of growth and change, and I am continually learning how to support the team, which for the most part, seems to mean just getting out of their way.
I’m a vision guy and an ideas guy. I love people, and I love Grand Rapids. I love the Dutch characteristics instilled in me of faith, work ethic, integrity, and strong cycling legs.
