Current position/Industry Specialty: Founding Principal

Years in the industry: 8

Most satisfying part of your job: Learning from my peers. We work in a multifaceted industry and everyone is so willing to share their experiences and insights if you ask them. I have learned more over coffee, lunch or a beer than I ever did in a classroom.

Last book you read or movie you’ve seen: The Irishman. I think it took me less time to read the book than to finish the movie.

If you could have lunch with anyone (living or dead) who would it be and why? My two late grandfathers. They embodied everything that defined the Greatest Generation and I just didn’t ask enough questions while they were still here. I would also take a table for 4 at a Golden Corral with Dale Earnhardt, Waylon Jennings and Apollo Creed.

What you like best about CRCBR: Relationships are the most integral part of our business and CRCBR provides a relevant platform that creates new ones.

What else should we know about you: Married with two kids!
