President & CEO
Downtown Cleveland Alliance
Education: Cleveland State University
First Job: Program manager for Cuyahoga County Department of Community Development
Toughest Challenge: Working with downtown property owners in 2005 to create the first comprehensive special assessment district on behalf of Downtown Cleveland
Greatest Inspiration: Nancy Cronin, whom I worked with for three years in the County’s Community Development Department, showed me that collaboration is the best way for us as a community to successfully achieve our goals.
Best Advice: If you don’t worry about who gets credit for success, you can work with partners to achieve much more than you could individually.
Proudest Moment: Being a part of a team effort that successfully brought and staged the 2016 Republican National Convention in Downtown Cleveland
