I have three awesome kids. Olive is six; Rye is three and Lark is ten months. My amazing wife April is the best doctor around (I may be biased) and the brand new Chief Medical Officer at Marcus Daly. I’m a biomimicry engineering consultant with Biomimicry 3.8 in Missoula. We research and apply biological strategies to help companies create innovative new products, processes and systems. I’m also faculty at Arizona State University where I teach in their Biomimicry Masters Program. I have a Bachelors of Science in Engineering Mechanics and Astronautics from the University of Wisconsin Madison, a Masters of Science in Biomimicry from Arizona State and a Biomimicry Professional Certification with an emphasis on leadership.
My professional and educational experiences have given me a range of skills that I think would contribute well to the school board. I’m a proven project manager for large scale innovation projects in a wide range of industries. The nature of this consulting requires getting up to speed on issues quickly, analyzing complex interconnected systems and building consensus around paths forward. I communicate clearly and work well in diverse interdisciplinary teams. I think that I would be a strong addition to the board.
