The short version
I’m a native of Indiana, a member of Red Sox Nation, and a nearly decade long resident of the frozen tundra that is Minnesota. By trade, I’m a CEO of a small strategic advisory firm. Outside of work, I’m an activist for the right to keep and bear arms. For fun, I’m a whisky-swilling, cigar-smoking, baseball and shooting fanatic.
For more than twenty-one years, I’ve worked in various aspects of corporate security, enterprise risk, organizational resiliency, crisis management, and business continuity. Most recently, I led Target Corporation’s Global Continuity & Resiliency Team. I previously led Target’s Global Crisis Management Team, our Corporate Security Innovation Team, and a host of other things.
Today, I’m the founder, principal consultant, and chief executive officer (CEO) of strategic advisory firm Bryghtpath LLC, based in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
