Who do you look up to most, and why?
Very difficult question, there are several friends in my inner circle that I consider de facto mentors. I admire several qualities within them from their parenting styles, their dedication to their families, their contributions to the community as well as their work ethic.
If you could travel anywhere in the world right now, where would you go? What would you do there?
I would go to Iceland to see the Polar Ice Caps while they still exist.
What's your favorite book and why?
That's a tough question. I would have to go with Rich Dad Poor Dad. The reason I selected that is because the lessons provided in the book on the importance of financial education and being willing to pass the correct nuggets, habits, beliefs to your children to continue the proper cycle of financial literacy. My Second favorite, even though you didn't ask that question would have to be Zoe and Zion - Love to Build. Why that is second is because it was written about my children for my children to be able to see themselves in the books we read.
What does "paying it forward" mean to you?
Paying it forward to me is providing opportunities across different spectrums to ensure that doors and obstacles are collectively broken down for anyone that can utilize assistance.
