Talk to me about:I love to talk to people about life and politics. I love hearing what people believe and why they think that way, even if we disagree on the problem and the solution. I am most passionate about my family and my God.
People would be surprised if they knew: I still play with Legos. They are a good way to de-stress, sit back and enjoy an afternoon. I love very hard rock music. My wife says I am the wrong personality to like that kind of “music”. She has just gotten good at ignoring the music I am listening to.
What one accomplishment (professional or personal) are you most proud of: Raising 3 daughters.
What’s your favorite thing about working at JQ: The support I get from my supervisor. We have a great working relationship that is based on openness and honesty – whether it is easy to hear or not.
