I’ve lived in Chico, California for the majority of my life and graduated from Chico State with a BS in Biological Sciences. After a brief diversion into studying Computer Science, my wife and I moved to San Rafael to join the tech bubble. Of course we didn't know it was a bubble at the time, and when it burst, we hightailed it back to Chico and I started a career at Chico State as a staff member in the Information Technology department, where I remained for 10 years. I started my career at Build in July of 2013 in a Marketing role, specifically to serve as a bridge between the Business and the Development teams. As I became more and more familiar with the various teams, I took on more “bridge jobs” until one day there was a whole department of Project Managers creating bridges between departments. In my current role, I continue to focus on building bridges through shared understanding of what our business does, how it does it, and what we want to do next.
