Jeff spent most of his early life in the forests surrounding Tijeras, NM where he formed a life-long connection with the natural world. In 2008, he earned a BS in Biomedical Engineering from Washington University in St. Louis, where he learned to solve open-ended, real-world problems by pairing analytical approaches with innovative thinking. After graduating, he played a key role in the design and implementation of health-related programs and technology platforms that broke the status quo and delivered new care options to underserved populations. Jeff enjoyed the sun and southern cuisine of Charleston, SC for 2 years before returning to St. Louis in 2014 to join the Enliven team.
He brings an inherent passion for organization and dissecting complex challenges into concise and manageable pieces, as well as a joy for delivering solutions that spark excitement in their users. Jeff thrives on social interaction and is always open to enjoying a conversation, a video game session, a good song, or a beer with friends and strangers alike. In his free time, Jeff enjoys exercising his creativity as a board game designer, Excel enthusiast, author, poet, and artist of all sorts.
