I am very passionate about my job. I love resolving issues and engaging in a good debate. My family is very important to me. I spend a lot of time on the baseball and football fields watching my sons play, and I have had many opportunities to travel because of baseball.

I truly believe in the power of positive thinking. My philosophy is that in life there are good times and bad times. No matter how bad things appear at any particular moment, think back to all the other bad times you’ve had. Remember that you are ok today, and take comfort in knowing that tomorrow will be better as well."
