Vice president of operations at Valor Studios, Denver, Colo.

My brother, Adam, is the best-selling author of two military books and my other brother, Bryan, is the graphic designer for our family business, Valor Studios. I run the day-to-day operations of this successful venture, which focuses on the world's most prestigious military artwork and our leading history magazine, Valor. Our mission is to honor veterans by telling their stories on canvas and in print. Our staff's work has earned praise from presidents, entertainment icons, museums, organizations and from veterans across the eras.
