WHAT INSPIRES ME ABOUT MY WORK
“For most people, the single most important economic factor in their life is their job. I am inspired by the clients I work with who are out there every day striving to improve the lives of working people.”
AWAY FROM WORK
“I am an avid, if aspirational, cyclist. All my waking hours away from work are spent with my wife and two young sons.”
