Currently he is chairman of American Floral Endowment board of trustees, and chairman elect of the Floral Marketing Research Fund.

His career in the industry began at W.J. Cowee Inc., Berlin, NY and has culminated as president of Design Master color tool Inc., Boulder, Colorado. For 12 years he has made a commitment to fighting cancer and supporting AIDS research by participating in long distance bike rides.

Among those dignitaries attending the event were former MFF Hall of Fame inductees Harrison "Red" Kennicott III AAF, Robert Friese AIFD, and Kathy Petz AAF, CF, PFCI.  Dinner sponsors included Teleflora, Nordlie Grandville, a Kennicott Brothers Company, 2017 MFA Youngperson of the Year, Jason Rudicil Eastern Floral, Ludema's Floral & Garden, and Gaudreau the Florist, LTD.
