Business Development for Freeman in the southwest region, maintaining a portfolio of over 5 million in national business. I reside on the board for IAEE DFW Chapter working with the International Office to grow awareness and membership in the leading events association. On the side I enjoy real-estate working with a local brokerage making the American Dream of home ownership happen for my clients. In my spare time I enjoy outdoor activities including, snow boarding, wake boarding, taking my jeep out and camping. Very involved with my local church and youth group mentoring young men.

I joined Freeman in 2005, learning all parts of the trade show and the corporate event industry with Freeman's Training program. Within months moved to exhibitor sales where I successfully sold and over serviced over 3 Million with multiple clients’ exhibit programs. In early 2008 moved on to exposition services working with associations, corporate customers and management teams. I spend 5 years working with the Gaylord Texan as the primary point of contact between Gaylord and Freeman. My role at the Texan included budgeting, forecasting, relationship management while overseeing the majority of trade shows, meetings, and events in the facility.
