Name one bucket list item:
I want to travel to Australia and New Zealand.
Name one rewarding/proud moment in your career so far:
In the aftermath of the 2011 tornado which devastated large portions of Tuscaloosa, I was fortunate enough to work with the team responsible for rebuilding the Tuscaloosa TAMKO facility. While working on the project, I was able to help a client recover from a devastating natural disaster and, in the process, build some great long-term relationships.
Any person alive or dead you would want to meet and why:
Warren Buffett. I consider him one of the greatest investors and business men of our time. His long-term approach to investing and business is refreshing in an environment where, too often, managers are driven to maximize short-term returns often at the expense of the business they are running.
Why you do what you do:
I enjoy working with clients and helping them find solutions to the challenges they face.
