Q&A

If you didn’t work in your current field, what would you do?
If I was not working in my current field, I would have loved to be a teacher in a school.

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? Why?
As a kid I wanted to join the Army when I grew up. I have a lot of respect for their dedication and the sacrifices they have to make for the freedoms we enjoy.

What do you do in your spare time?
I love to spend time with my kids and wife. Once they are off to bed, I love to hit the gym.
