Current Staff & Board Members
Hired Apr 16 2020
Director of Operations
I'm a 10-year native of Cincinnati and a graduate of the University of Dayton, where I studied Graphic Design. Before taking on this role, I worked as a designer in non-profits, where I loved to see my work put to use in the community. I've been very involved with Cincinnati Ultimate as a board member since 2014, a member of the Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Committee and a few others, as well as having many roles in the large-scale tournaments that Cincinnati Ultimate has hosted. I love to play in Cincinnati Ultimate leagues, and I play club women's on Sureshot, a local team. This job is truly a dream and I can't wait to help Cincinnati Ultimate grow in our community!
For any questions, comments, or suggestions, please reach out to me! I'd love to hear from you.
Appointed Aug 17 2016
Objectives: I have participated in Cincinnati Ultimate Board meetings off-and-on since 2010. I have also served on the Board in various capacities including At-Large Member, Treasurer, and now President since the summer of 2016. It has been amazing to witness the growth of the organization and now I am honored to be in a position to help drive that continued development. I look forward to working with my fellow Board members and other Committee members, league directors, and so many other volunteers that make Cincinnati Ultimate great. If you are interested in learning more about my ongoing plans, you can see our current 5-year strategic plan here.
Biography: I have been playing ultimate since 2005 and in that time I have been lucky enough to experience the sport as a player, captain, coach, volunteer, organizer, and administrator. Ultimate has taken me around the world and provided countless lifelong relationships that I am eternally grateful for. I now enjoy the chance to give back to the sport and allow those opportunities for other individuals. Currently, I continue to play ultimate at the club level with Steamboat and participate in various Cincinnati Ultimate leagues throughout the year. I live in the Madeira area of town with my wife, two kids, and dog.
