Family

I find joy, love and support from my wife, Audra, son Liam, and our two puppies Watson and Shamus.

Laughter

Above all, I believe in the power laughter has to unite people and lift spirits through the most challenging times.

Coffee

It is an essential part of my daily routine, invigorating me for the day ahead. Can’t go without a cup from Symmetry Coffee Company.

Books

As an avid reader, I find solace and enlightenment in books. Reading allows me to broaden my knowledge and offers an escape from the daily grind.

Travel

I love exploring different cultures and creating cherished memories. My favorite destinations to note would be Iceland, Turkey and Hawaii.

Nature

Being outdoors rejuvenates my spirit, providing inspiration and a sense of peace. We love going to Santos Trail, Baseline Park and Silver Springs.

Movies

My father was a movie actor and I’ve also worked setting up movies. So every time I go to the movies, I connect in some small way to my father, who has passed away.
