I always wished I lived in a peaceful, humanist, Star Trek: The Next Generation type world. That's basically the "origin story" of why I formed Grow Meaningful– I wanted to help develop as many future-focused, meaning-centered brands, workplaces, and communities as possible.

Professionally, I have developed high-level experience and expertise in a surprising number of areas, including:

  • budgeting and accounting

  • market research and sales forecasting

  • project management

  • commercial real estate

  • small business lending

  • operations management

  • process improvement

  • change management

  • program management

  • organizational development

  • staff development

  • culture change facilitation

  • curriculum writing,

  • nonprofit business planning

  • nonprofit strategic planning

I also spent a few years as full-time stay-at-home dad during the pandemic! It sounds like a lot because it is– I'm a scanner (RIP/thank you Barbara Sher). I fit the definition of an expert generalist with my professional level of understanding in so wide a field of subjects, and have been called by managers a "Swiss Army knife", "special forces soldier", and "Jack of all trades in a good way." The specific "resumé bullet" details of each experience are available in full transparency on my LinkedIn profile.

Personally, I'm grateful for my inspiring wife, Ali, my happy-go-lucky toddler son, Finley, my smiley infant son, Spencer, and my little Havanese sidekick, Linus. The middle child of three (probably why I'm a good facilitator!), I've lived in MA, RI, VT, and NC, and consider Rhode Island my home. If I had to pick two favorite hobbies that aren't eating or learning, they'd be sailing and snowshoeing.

I may have formed Grow Meaningful as a nonprofit organization development consultancy (specializing in earned revenue strategies for nonprofits), but like all good players in the infinite game, it will adapt over time to best advance its just cause:


creating a world where most people wake up feeling inspired by meaningful work, connected with their communities, motivated to be better, and excited for what's ahead.


See you there!
