Top three or four “mountain peaks” from your career prior to your current position, if applicable.

During my time with a pharmaceutical company I was part of a team that got life-saving medication to villages in Africa suffering from lead poisoning and individual children in countries where specific medication was not available.  I also had the opportunity to travel the world while overseeing global clinical supply distribution and commercial distribution in Asia-Pacific.

Your history with sports, again top three or four mountain peaks.

Played baseball and soccer into middle school.  Pitched at an All-Star game in 6th grade.

How did you become a Christ follower?

Christ called me to follow him after a week at Camp Men-o-lan when I was in grade school.

One word answer: God is teaching me about [blank] right now?


In what year did you join the board for Push The Rock?


You wouldn’t believe me if I told you I was in the crowd at [famous sporting event]. (Share your story)

Phillies and Eagles games last year of the Vet.

If I could play on a Field of Dreams (or court or pitch or course), I would want to play against [famous athlete from another era].

Reggie White is probably my all-time favorite athlete but since he would crush me like a bug, I would have to try standing in the batter’s box against Nolan Ryan.

I learned my best lesson about sportsmanship at age [blank]. I learned [tell the lesson]

I learned the benefits of great sportsmanship playing neighborhood football as a kid in Sellersville.  It fostered respect and peace among a diverse group of kids.

My favorite Push The Rock story of a life God changed is:

So many great stories it’s hard to pick one.  Obviously each life changed is worthy of celebration but I really love hearing how programs like before school basketball have reversed poor attendance and changed lives of inner-city students.
