  • Operations Manager
  • Trekked the Annapurna Circuit.
  • Mountain-biked around the island of Bali.
  • The Power of One is my favorite novel.

I joined ISI as the Operations Manager in January of 2013. I work with the Project Management and Customer Service teams in Fond du Lac, Milwaukee and California. I have spent my entire career in post-sales support operations and helping customers meet their goals. I have worked for innovative companies such as Morningstar, Extendicare and UnitedHealthcare. Being

mentored by leaders within these companies has instilled an appreciation of quality design, velocity to market and the value of customer relationships.

Prior to ISI, I was the Manager of Fulfillment, Customer Service and eCommerce for Design House---a nationwide distributor of home décor and outdoor products with offices in Mequon,

Throughout the centuries there were men who took first steps down new roads armed with nothing but their own vision.

WI and Shanghai, China. I am an alum of Marquette University (BA) and University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (MBA).

I am excited to be a part of the ISI team and to be working with professionals

who are not only students of the design and décor industries, but also passionate about the ISI mission.

I grew up in a Firefighter household on the southside of Chicago. I played a variety of sports for most of my life--baseball, wrestling, and rugby. I still like to stay active and compete. I have completed three marathons, most recently the 2012 Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon. In the winter, I like to snowboard with my young family. Aimee, my wife, and I have three school aged children---Padraig, Maura and Meghan. With three active children, Aimee and I spend a lot of time attending basketball games, dance recitals and, occasionally when schedules permit, traveling to enjoy the incredible northwoods.

I am a native of Chicago, but Milwaukee is home now. Service to others has played a major role in my life. I served in the Peace Corps in Nepal in a village in the foothills of the Himalayans. This experience gave me much more than I was ever able to give. I have served on the Wauwatosa City Council and the Wauwatosa Economic Development Corporation. I am on the Board of Directors for the Tosa Tonight, a free summer concert series in Wauwatosa.
