More Information

Significant professional accomplishment: Successfully transitioning and developing a completely new role within business development after being challenged to try something outside of my area of expertise.

Passion project: Having previously coached middle school basketball, I am excited to have the opportunity to coach my son in any sports that he might choose. I also have a passion to one day have a “project” vehicle of my own. Currently, I am only in the searching and planning phase.

Audacious goal: To someday own and develop my own properties.

Favorite quote: “Winning is not everything, but making the effort to win is” — Vince Lombardi

Influential book: “Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel,” by Virginia Lee Burton. Being a new dad and reading this to my son has brought things full circle with a story I listened to as a child!

Favorite TV shows: “Lawless” and “The Last Kingdom”

How do you recharge: I enjoy relaxing on the water or a nice afternoon of watching or playing sports.
