What word do you think best describes our company culture?

Who Inspires You:
Without naming anyone in particular – I am inspired by “the underdog.” When you’re not a first-round pick, or necessarily A1 on paper, but the person works hard to prove themselves and show that hard work can outplay talent – that’s the best kind of inspiration for me.

 Favorite Part of your Career:
Being a part of a project from start to finish

Best Career Lesson:
Accountability and dependability are some of the most important attributes you can bring with you to work every day. It’s unlikely that someone will be perfect all the time, but if you are someone that your team can depend on, that counts for a lot!

What do you do for fun/hobbies?
Spending time w/ my 2 sons and attending their sporting events.

Tell us something that might surprise us about you.
I grew up on a farm and trained/showed horses for 15 years

Where is the best place you have traveled to?
Nashville, TN or NYC

What is your motto or personal mantra?
Accept what is, let go of what was, have faith in what will be
