About the Author

GentlemenProject is a lifestyle blog which launched in 2015 for those who want elevate themselves from the rest, treat others with the highest levels of respect, become a servant leader, and most importantly, help create the Gentlemen of tomorrow!  We believe that Gentlemen are not defined by their personal image; rather their intentions, behaviors, actions, and the lasting impact they leave on those around them.  This is a collective of enlightened individuals who want to make an impact on their world.  We want to leave a wake of positive change.

We are only 3 years from being back in the 20’s!  Join me in the effort of morphing our societal expectation of a Gentleman back to one of respect, honesty, integrity, and selflessness.  If you enjoy self-development, leadership, Frank Sinatra, improving those around you, Mad Men, and always presenting your best self, this is the place for you.  You can expect posts full of advice on relationships, self-reflection, fashion, music, and leadership! Here at the GentlemenProject we direct everything through 5 pillars.  We believe these are personality traits, which all Gentlemen have in common.

I grew up in the Midwestern city of St. Louis where I was raised in a Christian home with midwestern values.  I was raised in an environment where it was expected that I treat women differently than I treat men, say please and thank you, open doors, put other’s needs and wants before my own, and do what’s right when nobody is watching.  I’m a devoted hard-working Christian husband, who wants to give the world to my wife.  I am a musician, avid runner, hockey player, sports enthusiast, and personal development junkie.  I do not know all of the answers.  However, I do know that I can share my experiences, life-lessons, and knowledge with you and together we can create the Gentlemen of tomorrow.
