What Do You Like to Do Outside of Work?
First and foremost, I love spending time with my wife and children. Family is very important to me. We find every opportunity to hike and enjoy long road trips to national parks and scenic destinations. Being physically active is also a favorite pastime, I exercise and play sports when not working.
Finally, I enjoy community service. I have participated in several youth growth and development camps.

Any Advice for Someone Looking to Do What You Do?
Learn from those around you. I listen and gain new ideas from personal insights and experience. Just about everyone I’ve come across in my life has shared some unique experience that shaped them and inspired them, which I have then been able to take and apply to my life and career.
