"Colleagues and friends that know me well are aware that I am a strong believer in alternative learning strategies. I hold self-improvement at high importance, so even though my days are filled with commitments as a business owner, consultant, husband, and dad, I make time to take a break and read a new book every week. One of my all-time favorites is Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell. It does not matter who you are; if you want to learn about courage, leadership, passion, commitment, and honor - this is a must read. Whether I am at work or home, I value transparency and a strong moral compass above all things. In my opinion these are the two greatest tenets for success. I wake up every morning knowing that I have the privilege of partnering with organizations that share these very values. I am fortunate to have earned these relationships, as today my clients have become true friends."
