What are you happiest doing, when you’re not working?
I love spending time with my family. We are very active, but mostly we laugh a lot. Time is only going faster and I know I won’t get these times back. So watching football, going out to eat, traveling, family dinners, etc. it doesn’t matter as long as we are all together.
If you went to happy hour, what would you order?
An old fashioned – no question, but I am an old fashioned snob. I make different kinds of simple syrups at home and experiment with different ryes, whiskeys, and even bourbon. I love how the taste profile can change depending on the bitters used as well. My go-to is Fee Brothers Orange Bitters. So good, go try it!
What do you do with friends in your spare time?
We kick each other. I am less than a year away from testing for my fourth degree blackbelt in taekwondo. I am an instructor and still compete, so Tuesday nights and Saturday mornings you’ll find me on the mats at the dojo, sparring and flying around. It is a great way to let out stress, stay in shape, and the mentoring aspects that come with teaching.
What’s the first concert you ever went to?
Dr. Dre The Chronic Tour in 1993 at Market Square Arena. It was incredible with Snoop Dogg, Tha Dogg Pound, Nate Dog, and Warren G. Little did we know at the time it would be only one of the seven shows they did that year due to all other 39 dates being canceled.
What’s a work-related accomplishment you’re most proud of?
Without a doubt the team we have at RightHand. I am so appreciative of how incredible our team is as people first, then as the talented creatives that they are. Having a business partner like Bryan has been one of the highlights of my career and I can’t imagine being in business with anyone else. We are building something special and doing it the right way. By surrounding ourselves with great people who are dedicated to making a difference for our clients and communities. And speaking of clients, we have amazing clients that are true collaborators and inspire us to take things to the next level.
