News & Resources
How do you spend quality time with your family?
My wife Megan and I live in Loveland, Ohio, and enjoy walking the Loveland bike trail with our two dachshunds, visiting local restaurants, and canoeing down the Little Miami River. We are expecting our first son in June 2023, and look forward to creating these same memories as a family.
What was your first job?
When I was 15, I started cleaning tables and waiting at Red Robin, where I learned that the movie “Waiting” is, unfortunately, a little too close to reality. I grew an appreciation for the service industry and believe everyone could benefit from working in retail or service at some point in their life.
What is your favorite vacation spot? Why?
Growing up, my family and I took an annual trip to Glen Arbor and Traverse City, Michigan. There is no better place to escape from work, relax on the lake, and enjoy the outdoors. If you happen to find yourself in the area, I have plenty of recommendations from the Sleeping Bear Dunes, to Murdick’s Fudge, to local wineries, to the best restaurants and ice cream shops.
