He also has transformed the McMahon survey report data into a templated data depository that enables in-depth market research of the Club industry and is currently leveraging unique access to this industry data to create exploratory data visualizations.

He is participating in Contemplative Leaders in Action (CLA), which is a young Jesuit leadership group that integrates prayerful discernment as foundation for decision-making. The majority of his extracurricular time is spent with his beautiful wife and their three young daughters.”
