Editor, writer, marketing & communications consultant, private chef, deliverer of sarcastic commentary.
Roland studied Communications with a Journalism concentration and a minor in history at the University of Toledo (Ohio).
He started out as a reporter in southern Michigan and northern Ohio before discovering business communications (generally) had better hours and (usually) paid better.
Since then he has worked for various organizations, most often in technology and telephony solutions companies, building their communication programs and developing their vertical market efforts.
His work for a couple of different firms targeting AEC got him interested in the industry, which ultimately led him to AZBEX. He joined the team as Senior Correspondent in 2015, left to work a marketing job for a few months, realized he liked AZBEX better and circled back in mid-2016, stepping into the Editor’s role later that year.
Roland was born in Hicksville, Ohio (Yes, it’s a real place.) and left to go to college in Toledo at 17. At 25 he moved to the Valley and has remained ever since.
He’s married to the lovely and talented Nathalie Cadieux, an actor who is also honing her skills as a writer and producer.
