What gets you out of bed in the morning?
The excitement of new opportunities with each new day. I love my work, I thoroughly enjoy my co-workers and the HA work environment and I live to experience all life has to offer with my family and watch my children grow and learn every day.
What do you do in your spare time?
I spend all of my spare time experiencing life with my family. From multiple youth sports activities, band & choir performances, to family vacations hiking in national parks or relaxing on the beach…spare time is always filled with family activities.
What’s your favorite building?
I’m not sure I have a favorite building…but my favorite ‘space’ is the Trevi Fountain in Rome, Italy. My wife and I loved to sit there for hours and watch the interactions between local Italians and tourists. It’s a magical place that really embodies the concepts of a lively urban fabric and human interaction.
What might people not know about you?
I’m a girls youth softball coach. I’ve been volunteering as a head coach for my daughter’s softball team for four years. It has been very rewarding to teach the girls and watch them learn and improve over the years, and more importantly trying to be a positive role model and make the experience fun.
What’s your favorite part of this job?
Solving problems for our clients. I love to truly listen to our clients and figure out what they need in order to meet their vision and goals.
