Meet The Team
We bring exhibiting brilliance to trade shows and environments
We love what we do.
You will too.
Purpose1 is a boutique agency that creates extraordinary exhibits. We offer design, construction, rentals, management, distribution services and onsite installation support that consistently exceed our clients’ expectations.
Our team is passionate about what we do, and our years of experience provide us with knowledge and access to resources to meet the many challenges that arise with trade shows. Our customers agree that our exhibits deliver impact on the show floor.
Alive and breathing in Harrisburg, PA, for most of my life, I am thankful for my wife Kristin and two sons, Nicholas and Cooper.
I began my career with Purpose1 as an intern in 1997 and purchased the company in 2011. Today I lead a team of artistic, inventive problem solvers who help clients “exhibit brilliance” in their face-to-face marketing.
