Tell us about yourself:

Two days after graduating college, I moved from Kentucky to St. Louis to take the first step in starting my career. Most of my days consist of grinding it out at work and coming home to relax with my girlfriend, Betsy, and our dog, Willett. I enjoy Kentucky basketball, being the underdog in office Ping Pong, and riding Lime scooters. I prefer my bourbon on the rocks!

Why did you join Sonder Payments?

I walked in the door one day with the intention of selling to Sonder when I was at my old company. After 10 minutes of talking with the team, they started selling me. I quickly realized that this team was doing exactly what I wanted to do and that these were people I wanted to surround myself with. 6 months later, I trusted my gut, gave Sonder Payments a call and they welcomed me in. At the end of the day, I joined Sonder Payments because I believe in the vision we’re chasing, and knew this was an opportunity I had to take.

What’s your motto?

“Be uncommon amongst uncommon people.”
