What is the biggest lesson you've learned in your career? 

The biggest lesson in my career is that surrounding yourself with good people makes any job easier/better.


Do you like going to the movies or prefer watching them at home? 

Unfortunately, I do not have the ability to make a Blue Icee at my house… so Movie Theater. 


What trait of yours most helps you succeed in the business?  

The trait that helps me succeed in business is I enjoy helping people. I genuinely care about others and want to find a solution to the customer's problem. I think that is more important than any "sales pitch." 


What is the best concert you've ever been to?  

I can't pick just one, so the best concerts I've been to were Black Pumas in Madison, Wisconsin, or Green day in Chicago, Illinois, which was at a venue with only 1,200 people.


Are you an introvert or an extrovert? 

I can be either an introvert or an extrovert. It all depends on if I've had my coffee.


Where do you feel really in your element at work?  

I feel the most in my element when I am talking to customers. I love getting on long phone calls with customers and getting to know them. A great conversation should always end with some sort of motivation/inspiration.


What was your first job?

My first job was a flower shop in Rockford Illinois.


What is your favorite book to read? 

My favorite books were the Harry Potter series. I am more of an audiobook or movie person. 


What did you want to be when you got older?  

I wanted to be a doctor when I was older so I would be able to help people until I saw the cost of schooling and decided against it.


Are you into podcasts, or do you only listen to music?
I enjoy listening to both. I am always listening to something. If I am listening to a podcast, it will be the Dan LeBatard Show. If I am listening to music, it will probably be Matt Maeson, Black Pumas, Magic City Hippies, plus a bunch of others.

Favorite Quote?

Honestly, I don't think I've ever lived by a quote, so let me quote my favorite movie: "My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, and loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son. Husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next." – Maximus Decimus Meridius, Gladiator.
