If you had not chosen your current profession, what would you choose and why?
After nearly 30 years in Commercial Banking and Wealth Management, I just left my “current’ profession to take my dream job with the Maryland Food Bank so I can help, in some small way, people in need lead better lives.
My daughter was studying abroad last Spring, so our family went over to spend time with her in both London and Paris. Italy is my favorite travel destination not only for all the country has to offer (history, food, culture, etc.), but also because my grandfather still lives there, along with Aunts, Uncles and first cousins.
When I want to relax, I … :
Go to the Delaware shore with my family or watch just about any type of sporting event.
“Shawshank Redemption”. A great case of the power of hope and determination.
“Good to Great,” by Jim Collins.
One of my favorite quotes is “Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value” — I have seen it attributed to both Winston Churchill and Albert Einstein.
