GOING BEYOND NUMBERS:

WHAT ARE THE DEFINING MOMENTS THAT
CHANGED YOUR LIFE?

I went travelling for an entire year by myself to
Australia and New Zealand. I came home from that
experience a completely different person – more
self aware, confident, social and outgoing.

WHAT DO YOU DO TO RELAX WHEN YOU’RE
NOT WORKING?

I enjoy spending time with my wife, Joanna, and
my two children, Alexis and Mason. I also enjoy
playing golf, baseball and going to the gym.
