My Expertise

My current role

I co-founded and serve as CEO of The Signatry: A Global Christian Foundation. With The Signatry, I work to change the way people view and practice generosity. I have led the foundation’s efforts from its beginning in 2000 to now sending out over $2.5 billion in grants.

I work with families, individual givers, ministries and financial advisors. I specialize in working with business owners who are looking to sell or transition their businesses to the next generation. I also teach ministries how to work with major donors.

My professional career

Prior to starting the foundation in 2000, I worked as a partner with Blackwell Sanders Matheny Weary & Lombardi, a large law firm in Kansas City, and later with Sanders Conkright & Warren.

In addition to my CEO responsibilities with The Signatry, I have helped found a couple technology companies:, a fundraising software company providing an online solution for non-profits to market and receive gifts of all kinds; and, an online personal and private family legacy platform.

I am also a published author and sought-after conference speaker. I was honored to be named one of America’s Top 25 Philanthropy Speakers for 2017 as ranked by Philanthropy Media.
