Tell us where you were born, grew up, and reside today?

Hobbies (that you’ll admit to)?

“I love doing anything on the water — boating, sailing, skiing, surfing, fishing. I love to vacation in the Caribbean, mostly in the more remote island chains of the Bahamas.”

What gets you excited at work?

“Marketing. Marketing. Marketing. Coming up with unique solutions to our clients’ pain points. I also love team-building with my internal group of 78 team members.”

Lastly, tell us a secret (keep it clean) nobody knows about you?

“I went to an all boys prep school for all of high school. I was around a lot of bright kids with tons of ambition. Very competitive both in the classroom and on the sports fields.”
