What are 3 words people use to describe you?

Loyal, Insightful, Humble            

What are you most grateful for? 

My family, my health, and my friends.

What is the best advice you have ever been given?

Stop swimming upstream. Hearing that made me reflect on the way I approach things in my life. Do what’s right and surround yourself with good people who share the same values.

What gets you excited about life?

The opportunity to grow personally and professionally and spending time with my wife and girls doing anything.

How do you define success?

Helping others progress towards and achieve their goals.

What is your proudest achievement?

Raising two amazing young ladies with my wife, seeing them graduate college and go out and make a difference in the world.

What life lesson did you learn the hard way?

Getting an education opens up more opportunities for you. I waited to do this until after my wife, and I had started a family. If I could do this over, I would flip the order. Going to school while raising children is really difficult.

What was the best book you’ve read and why?
Can’t Hurt Me, by David Goggins.  I was inspired by David’s mental and physical toughness. He practices and preaches the idea that we’re all capable of more than we think, if you’re able to be comfortable being uncomfortable.
