If you had not chosen your current profession, what profession would you choose and why?

I would have chosen to be a City Schools Teacher. After all, it is among the highest callings. Being a teacher would allow me – everyday – to develop and empower young minds.

Favorite vacation:

Nice, France – no other place where you can be in your swim gear on the shore of the Mediterranean and then a few minutes later be in your tuxedo in Monaco.

When I want to relax, I … : 

Request an Uber/Lyft, call my GBC Leadership friends and head downtown.

Favorite quotation:

“God rewrote the text of my life when I opened the book of my heart to his eyes.” Psalm 18:24
