Guilty pleasure

– Clearly, playing golf.  A life long passion that gives me the opportunity to spend quality time with my kids and my friends.  Plus, it is a game you can never perfect, so the challenge to improve is omnipresent.

Favorite music genre

– While many of my kids laugh at me, I still find myself enjoying easy rock from the 70’s!

Favorite book or author

– “A Season of Life” by Jeffrey Marx.  I found it to have compelling insights in how to raise boys and develop them into empathetic men.

Biggest personal challenge

– Life tends to be full of challenges, which I like as they tend to keep me more focused and on my toes. The challenge I take most seriously is raising my three kids to be kind, sensitive, empathetic, and grounded with a strong work ethic.

On your bucket list

– Would absolutely enjoy the opportunity to play one round of golf at Augusta National, home of the Masters Golf Tournament.

“Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.”   ~ John Wooden
