2018 - 2020

President - American Student Dental Association (Pittsburgh Chapter)

I served as President of our Local Pittsburgh ASDA Chapter from October 2018 – February 2020.  In my position I led and managed our chapters 300+ members at Pitt Dental Medicine.  I worked to direct the executive board in developing programming for members, as well as represent our local chapter and district and national conferences.

2017 - 2018

Co-founder - Broeder Corp

In 2017 Jake Schroeder and I co-founded Broeder Corp.  We provided Line Striping services and sealcoating to the Minneapolis Metro.  We started off the season with a 10 parking stall lot, and ended the season striping the parking lot for Target Corporation Headquarters and a Home Depot lot.  We learned more in this summer about business than all previous years combined and this experience cemented my desire to pursue entrepreneurship in a greater capacity throughout my future endeavors.

About Me

Life-long Learner.  I love learning new things in almost any discipline. I call myself a student dentist but by no means does that define me. I love to code, design, build, and pursue start-ups to solve the worlds problems.  Want to see the unabridged version? Check out my LinkedIn!
