What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
I love being with my kids and wife. We enjoy camping and cruising around the lake or fishing offshore.
Have you learned any new skills during the pandemic?
I’ve learned how to better delegate tasks and responsibilities to team members. I would also say helping team members by pointing them in the right direction while still letting them solve and resolve issues themselves to allow for personal growth and better understanding.
Who would play you in a movie about your life?
I read this out loud, and my wife said, Charlie Hunnam. That is a tough one. I would say Bruce Willis but from the 90’s because Die Hard never gets old, lol.
Do you have any pets?
Yes, I have two dogs that have been adopted. Murphy and Penny.
What is one of your favorite songs?
I have a special play list for my favorite songs. I use this playlist when I need to focus on a project, ride my Harley, or anytime I want to jam and not think of anything else. My favorite song would be Kickstart my Heart by Motley Crue.
What was your first cassette tape or CD?
This is so hard to remember! I believe it was the TOPGUN soundtrack or Journey on cassette tape.
Are you binge-watching anything?
Yeah, The History of Swear Words on Netflix (when the kids are sleeping haha).
Favorite travel spot?
Simple, the Lake or Coast.
If you could choose your age forever, what age would you choose and why?
If I could stay 28 y/o that would be great. During this age, I still had a great metabolism to go with a big appetite. Now I must watch the calorie intake or make time to exercise.
What’s your biggest fear?
My biggest fear is not living life to the fullest before my time on this earth is done.
What do you like most about working for RealTime?
I absolutely love the company culture at RealTime. RealTime provides excellent customer service, which I believe the RT staff truly embraces. I also enjoy the work-life balance and the understanding of that need from the company.
