My clients appreciate that I treat their problems and concerns as my own and that I work as an extension of their organization. They know I’m someone who’s dedicated to fixing the healthcare problem in the United States and, because of that desire, I have a willingness to roll up my sleeves and solve complex problems.
Occasionally, I speak to different industry groups on current issues. At a Michigan Municipal Risk Management Association’s conference, I discussed OPEB (other post-employment benefits) liabilities (legacy benefit costs). I’ve also spoken at a number of conferences sponsored by the Michigan School Business Officials on the Affordable Care Act, Michigan Public Act 152, and general benefits strategies.
I belong to the Detroit chapter of the International Society of Certified Employee Benefit Specialists. I received a B.A. in political economy and economics from Michigan State University.
I enjoy spending time with my wife, Melissa, and my two boys, Miles and Asher. I also enjoy attending MSU football games and rock concerts. Additionally, I’m a self-taught guitar player and still play the occasional video game — in my rare free time.
