Heath spent a decade as a police officer before leaving law enforcement to finish a bachelor’s degree in Information Systems Security and joining the Department of Defense (DoD) in 2015. In 2017, he joined Artisan Electronics, Inc. and quickly moved into a management role and began overseeing the company’s internal IT/Cyber department. He recently finished a 6-month stint as Program Manager on contract under General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) leadership at NSWC Crane. He volunteers at Ivy Tech Community College in Bloomington on the Entrepreneurship and IT advisory committee. He is also one of the founders of the Bloomington chapter of the Defense Entrepreneurs Forum (DEF) and was the DEF2020 Conference Director. He earned his master’s degree in Corporate Innovation and Entrepreneurship with a focus on Complex Negotiations from Penn State University. When I am not working, I enjoy playing Dungeons and Dragons; reading, writing, and drawing; and spending time with his wife, daughter, and dogs.
