Logistics. Dennis has many loves. His pets, music, family, intelligent conversation, and a good beer. His priority in life is the people that he loves, an eclectic mix of friends that grows as life unfolds. But at the age of 30, Dennis found he was living an unfulfilling life. Common culture had convinced him that material goods would lead to satisfaction. This turned out to be an empty promise. So Dennis decided to do something fulfilling. He rode his bike across North America. Through this amazing experience, he vowed to be happy, a promise that generated and continues to generate many exciting opportunities. Heading the business development for The Argonauts is one of them. For Dennis, The Argonauts serves in uniting the souls of those who are searching for fulfillment in life by exploring the unknown.
