What are some things you really enjoy working on at OpenBox?
We’ve been able to build a business that I am proud of! I feel great each morning when I come into the office. I feel proud of employees each week when we have our team meeting and hear about their successes. We have a great team and we have a great environment and I really enjoy what we’ve built!
Where did you grow up?
I grew up on the east side of Indianapolis. I went away for college but I am now raising my family on the east side with my wife. We have many close friends and family on the east side.
Where did you go to college and what did you study?
I went to Ball State University and majored in Sport Administration and Management.
What are some of your hobbies? What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
We are an outdoor family! We are either camping, boating or at the kids events and even in our free time we still do things as a family. Our kids are very active and we live a pretty active lifestyle. We stay very busy and we have a lot of fun!
Favorite sports teams?
Love the Colts, the Pacers, even though they’re hard to watch lately and I follow Notre Dame in all sports, Cincinnati Reds and the Detroit Red Wings a little bit.
My wife is Dana Mullins and she’s been 1,000% supportive and encouraging since the topic of starting our own business ever came up. I would’ve never taken this leap if it weren’t for her belief in me. My children are Hadley (9, turning 10 in February) Brandt (7, turning 8 in August) and Graham (4, turning 5 in January). They think it is the coolest thing that we have a business and they all get excited if they see one of our trucks on the road. They’re my motivation.
Aside from friends, family, and anyone important in your life, what’s one thing that would be impossible for you to give up?
Pizza!! Impossible, don’t even want to think about giving up Pizza. Good pizza and an Old Fashioned is the way to my heart.
What is your favorite food?
My wife bought me a Traeger grill for Fathers Day a year or so ago so basically anything I cook on that is my favorite food….and pizza.
What is your favorite television show?
Not really a show, but I watch lots of shows on the Discovery Channel and the History Channel. I like to learn about our past and about other areas of the world and some of the things they showcase are fascinating to me.
How would everyone at OpenBox describe you?
I’d be afraid to ask but I hope as a good leader, fun to be around and knowledgable and helpful.
