What is your favorite game or sport to watch or play?
Without a doubt it’s golf. I played competitively in high school and managed to join team at SMU as a walk-on. I always enjoyed the individual aspect of the game in that it’s just you and the course. As for watching sports, usually college football or college basketball.
What do you love to do outside of work?
As of October 2016, I have three kids under three so most of my spare time is spent with them doing family-related activities. We frequently go on road trips and check out local fairs/events.
