What is your occupation and company?
I am the founder/video strategist of Flex Media
How were you introduced to the Club?
I had heard of the club and attended one around town in 2016 but didn’t end up joining. I came back to the club again when I heard Melinda, Corrina, and Nick were on the board. I know them from other young professional groups and they are very involved and hard working YPs, so I wanted to check it out again.
What made you decide to become a member?
I enjoyed how friendly all of the board members were at the around town as well as how friendly the attendees were. I enjoyed that the club was sponsoring other nonprofits, and I felt I could get behind the mission. I also enjoyed how well-planned the Around Towns were as well.
What do you enjoy most about the Club that keeps you coming back?
I would say the people. I really enjoy being in the same room as all of the other passionate YPs in Cleveland who want to make a difference in their careers, the city, and the organization.
What's one fun fact about you that people typically don't know?
I am a part-time police officer.
