Chief Operating Officer
Proud father of four, native Texan and explorer of life and its amazing people and places. I’ve always been an analytical sort, a student of people and of things and I’ve learned to apply those skills not only to business but to the exploration of our amazing world. Time is our most precious commodity – we all have the exact amount to work with each and every day. My Livit journey began when something stirred inside of me right after college that took me to live in Vienna, Austria for three months. Seeing many places in Europe – many behind the “iron curtain” back in those days, was life changing. And meeting and working with the people living in those places is something I will never forget. That initial taste has taken me to every State in the US from 5-star hotels to hostels to sleeping under the stars in Colorado. I’ve also been thrilled to experience 2 dozen countries from those down under with my first earthquake to the wonders in Europe where the people and tastes I experienced were unforgettable.
You don’t have to travel thousands of miles to be an adventurer – It’s the people we choose to include in our lives that impact us the most and that experience can occur in as simple a place as your corner pub. I’m very blessed by who I count as those who would be by my side through thick and thin. As I’ve always said – all things being equal, I’d rather be experiencing a meaningful event, an awesome beach, majestic mountain or amazing place with these people than doing anything else.
Creating this Company and seeing it impact people through so many ways is a great joy for me. Our Livit culture is our top priority but we realize we need world class operations and people to make this experience we call Livit perform the way we want it to, for you . An Engineering degree from Texas A&M and an MBA from UT-Dallas help give me the tools to manage my role. As a serial entrepreneur I’ve started and helped run several Companies but none compare to what we are creating here at Livit. Having a role in passing on the passions I hold dear not only to my kids but to anyone who is drawn to Livit is the reason we created this Company and what brings me to the office rather than the beach!
