Fun Facts:

What is your favorite game or sport?

I love college and professional football. My top teams are the Vols of Tennessee and the Tennessee Titans.

What do you love to do outside of work?

My hobbies include exercise every day. Walking, bike riding and weight training are the ones I enjoy the most. I snow ski once a year with Karen my wife, usually in Utah. We travel to Hilton Head with our dogs Jed and Brock and we are trying to get out west with an RV in the fall.

What’s your favorite travel destination, or where would you like to go?

My favorites are a tie between Queenstown New Zealand and South Africa. They must be special because Bora Bora is third!

Music is what I grew up with on Eight Tracks (I know, what is that?): Eagles, Boston, Journey, Elton John, Doobie Brothers, Van Halen, Kansas and America.

Donate it to Siloam Health, two indigent care clinics in Nashville where my wife donates her time and Learning Matters, an organization that teaches and tutors kids who are less economically fortunate.

What is your greatest piece of advice?

Live life at its fullest, do what brings you the most joy and communicate and love the people who are dearest.
