No one ever calls me to say “just wanted to let you know, things are GREAT today… have a good one!” We are dealing with real human challenges. I do enjoy solving people’s problems but it took a long time to not internalize. Once I learned how, it was a lot easier to be successful without the stomachaches. I’m not saying it never happens (the stomachache) … it’s just less frequent! LOL
As a kid, I was well rounded, playing everything from baseball and football to paintball and motocross. I could relate to everyone I talked to, and talk to anyone. What I love about what I do now as an adult is that I get to meet and learn about so many different types of businesses and people. It really is a joy, and it fits me. When I’m not thinking about clients and HRO, you can find me wrangling my children, coaching youth sports and spending time with family and friends.
Favorite junk food: Ice cream!
Best vacation ever: My wife and I spent 2 weeks in Ireland before we had children and it was a time of reflection and reconnection. I love my children more than anything, but when they are grown, my wife and I will only have each other. We are lucky to connect on multiple levels.
Known around the office as: The information person.
Celebrity encounter: My friends and I met Allen Iverson on the street in Philadelphia when he was at his peak in 2001. It was a great night that we will never forget.
My personal credo: Treat others how you would want to be treated.
Pet peeves: Doublespeak! Just tell me, whatever it is.
My personal hero: My parents. They have always been there for so many different reasons, and every one of them shaped who I am today.
My biggest phobia: Getting sick. I am always worried about not having the ability to take care of those around me.
Graduated: Drexel University College of Business
