I’m a huge sports fan, and a believer that many of the concepts behind winning teams, also make for successful businesses. They often have the same things in common. They have a well-developed plan, communicate, work as a team, have fun and have great chemistry. Finally, and most importantly, they are committed to being the absolute best at what they do.
Outside of business and sports, I love traveling, and have been to 49 of the 50 states. I'm fascinated by cities, particularly downtowns. Other than being creative, there's nothing I'm more passionate about than a good slice of pizza.
