Born and raised in Massachusetts. Graduated from Calvin College with a degree in engineering. My wife, Erica, and I have three curious and energetic children, Landon, Owen, and Hadley. What a blessing they are! Vocation: Vice President of Lakewood Construction. Why involved at BGC: Youth Engagement, character, learning, and growth are big deals. I want to provide youth the support they need to flourish in God's world.
I grew up in Hudsonville and Graduated from MSU. I moved to Holland after graduating and started working at GMB Architects and Engineers. Over 25 years later I am still with the company, and now as Executive Vice President. I am married to Jodi and have three children (Max, Clair, and Andrea). I love working with the B & G Club because it has such a lasting and positive impact on so many kids in our community.
I am the son of a Mexican immigrant and the youngest in a migrant working family that settled in Holland MI. I'm a graduate of Hope College and currently the Director of Team Member Services at Quality Car Wash. My wife Nini and I enjoy raising our two girls Jayliz and Mila. I began attending the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Holland in 1994 in 2nd grade. Little did I know the staff Mary, Joey, Gene, Ruben, and Julie would have such an impact on my life. The Boys and Girls Club provided me and some of my closes friends with a stable, supportive, fun, and safe environment while also providing opportunities and resources to build a better life. These are the reasons why I am still involved with BGC today and blessed to be on the Board.

I grew in up in Holland, attended Holland Christian and received my BBA and MBA from Grand Valley State University. I have been fortunate to be engaged in this community as a father of four boys, through my role as VP of Human Resources at Gentex Corporation and now as an HR Consultant and volunteer on multiple area non-profit boards. The Boys and Girls Club is making such a positive impact in this community and I am excited to be part of this great organization.
