What’s an essential part of your daily routine?

I don’t have one, I try and wake up and make the best of every day by being present and trying to do the right thing.  

Do you have any pet peeves?

I’m not too fond of it when people make things harder than they are. Either way you slice it, it’s probably not that bad, and it could always be worse. 

Do you have a favorite holiday? Why?

I don’t have a favorite holiday, I like certain ones more but, on any holiday when I get to spend some time with my family it is always a win. 

What would be the first thing you would do if you won the lottery?

If we are talking big bucks, I’d take 50-75% of that and reinvest in other ventures to make more money. Then take the other 25-50% and buy a property with land and retire. I would spend most if not all my time fishing, hunting, traveling, and being outdoors.  

Who or what inspires you in your career?

Honestly, it’s the people I work with that make me want to come to work and do my best every day. It doesn’t matter if I was picking up trash, I’ve always had the opportunity to work with some great people. Kinda like a family, those are the environments that I look for in a place where I’m going to spend most of my time and energy. 

What’s one thing you can’t live without, and why? 

Oxygen….lol I need it to live. I’d have to say, my family. I have an amazing wife and 3 amazing kids. I’m truly grateful for the experience of being a father and husband.
