What interested and motivated you to join the BSFC board
I was introduced to Blue Skies through my girlfriend Cecelia who is currently on the board. I had been assisting in some volunteer work and then found out that there was an opportunity to help even more by joining the board. BSFC helps so many children in
County and to have the honor to participate and impact our community motivated me to commit additional time and become a board member.
What goals do you have as a board member?
My goals on the board are to increase our charity's exposure out in the community, to inform people about the great work we do in the community, and to attract more people to it.
What motivates you in life?
What motivates me in life is the ability to spend time with my family, travel and playing soccer. These items bring tremendous joy to my life.

Describe your professional career
I worked for six years as an office manager of our family owned Transportation company, and am owner of a coffee service business.

This new career both inspires and challenges me to grow personally and professionally.

New York, Whistler,

New Zealand in August.
Anything else you would like to share?
I would like to share with everyone that being involved in a non-profit brings happiness to your life in many ways I never knew. The joy of hearing about a child being able to attend a camp or take driver’s education, when they would not have had the chance without BSFC just lights up your soul. BSFC is an amazing charity within
County and I am proud to be apart of it.
