He served two years as Legislative Liaison for the Wood Machinery Manufacturers of America’s Public Policy Committee. He has also held the position of Communications Director for the Illinois Wood Utilization Team from 2015 to 2018 and has held the same job title for the Woodwork Career Alliance of North America since 2016.

Other special projects included a telemarketing program for the Southeast Urban Wood Exchange, an extensive phone interview membership survey campaign for the Association of Woodwork and Furnishings Suppliers and developing an PR marketing program related to wood biomass research for the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center.
