What I love most about my job is … getting the opportunity to hang out with all of my matches!

How has mentoring played a role in your life? I believe that mentoring plays an invaluable role in all of our lives. Whether it be formally, like the mentoring you receive from a parent, coach, or friend, or informally, we can use the information and instruction that we receive from others in our lives to mold the individuals that we become.

When I’m not at work, you can find me … Typically hanging out with my wife, son, and dog, If not, I’m probably watching sports of any fashion or visiting the YMCA.

What is your favorite spot(s) in Indy? Fountain Square and all of the businesses in it. Also Victory Field!
