What's Your Passion?
I enjoy the unity of those I have the pleasure of working with at work. I enjoy finding simplistic solutions for our client’s complex problems. I enjoy the friendships created over 30 years of client service.
At home, I enjoy the slower pace with the kids now out and on their own. I enjoy traveling with my wife. But my guilty pleasures are golf and acoustic guitar.
