I fell into the world of grants in 2015 and have worked with transportation and housing grant opportunities for government and nonprofit entities in that time. My wife (Rachel) and I recently had our first child (Sienna) and we have two dogs – Waffles and Pancake. When I’m not writing and researching grants, I love to go on runs, hikes with my family, and recently I’ve become obsessed with golf – it’s a problem.
