Thank you Arizona Foothills Magazine for the feature and helping us spread the word about The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Man & Woman of The Year Campaign. Its an honor to have a small part in this great organization that is helping find cures to cancer.


“Meet Managing Partner of Arizona Venture Consulting, Venture Mentor at ASU’s Entrepreneurship & Innovation department and Board of Trustees member for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Arizona where he is the Treasurer and co-chair of the Man & Woman of the Year Campaign.”

“I’m currently working on… The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society 2019 Man & Woman of the Year Campaign. I am the co-chair of this year’s event along with Wes Gullet. Last year we raised just over $1.25MM and this year we hope to raise $1.5-2MM. My hope is this is the year we really cement the Grand Finale Gala as one of the valleys marquee charity events. I’ve been on the board of the LLS for two years now and love the organization. In 2015, Brint Morrow and I started a legacy team, Coast to Coast Cures, to support candidates each year. To date we have raised over $500K for the LLS. I truly feel like we are making an impact working with the LLS and the stats back it up. Over 60% of blood cancer therapies were funded by the LLS and in the last 19 years 40% of ALL CANCER treatments were first approved for blood cancers.”
