The one thing I am passionate about...
My priorities have changed over the years. I have always been passionate about getting ahead in life and building a better life. In the last few years I've been fortunate enough to have two wonderful children, and the main focus for me now is to provide for them and spend all the quality time I can find with them. As far as me personally, I am still passionate about current events, traveling and seeing new things, and seeking adventure. That ambition is still there, too: I am passionate about competing in business and always getting ahead.
I typically spend my leisure time
I really love traveling internationally and experiencing the world, and I'm an adrenaline junky. I'm always up for a day of roller coasters, and I try to go bungee jumping and parachuting at least once a year. Locally I like to go to standup comedy shows, camp, ski, and bike.
The most influential person in my life has been
Open communication. It's important to me that my partner and I can talk about anything that is on our minds and not let resentment build up until it becomes a serious problem.
The first thing people notice about me
As far as physical features, people either notice my eyes, which are blue-green, or the fact that I have dimples when I smile. That either comes across as attractive or cute, but no man wants to be considered "cute."
The last book I read and enjoyed
I am a voracious reader of news. A day doesn't go by that I don't read at least a dozen different news sites.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am thankful for my two children. I love being a father.
- I am thankful for the success of my business, which has expanded several times.
- I am thankful for the network of friends and family that support me when I need it..
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I wish more people that know me got to see me with my children. I am a good businessman, but I've got a gift for fatherhood. That's me at my best. The highest title I've ever held is "Daddy."
Friends Describe me as
Ambitious, Funny, Intelligent, Rational
A little more about me
Every year I like to spend a week surfing off the coast of Costa Rica, outside Tamarindo. There's a little restaurant there named "Lola's." My job can be stressful, though I'm pretty low-key most of the time, but I've always found that Lola's is somewhere it is impossible to hold onto stress. I love to travel, and I will happily go to other places, but that little corner of the world is special.
