Golf and Rotary are two things that I am passionate about, and this opportunity to bring them together in order to raise money for the eradication of polio makes me giddy. This will be my first time walking 100 holes in a day. My goal is to raise $10,000 and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will match 2-for-1 every dollar contributed. When not playing golf or working with Rotary, I love being with my wife and three young kids and serving clients at a boutique mergers and acquisitions firm in Denver, Colorado. As a Denver native, I love the mountains, forests and all things outdoors in the Rocky Mountain West. Thank you very much for your support of my Hundred Hole Hike to fight polio!
