What do you love most about living in the North State? The natural beauty of the mountains, lakes, river and streams. In addition, the North State is filled with incredible people. It is an amazing place to sell real estate.
What’s your favorite way to unwind after a long day? Relaxing on our deck and connecting with my wife over a glass of our favorite beverage.
What’s your favorite movie of all time? “Chariots of Fire.”
If you could have any super power, what would it be? The ability to create global peace.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? Anywhere tropical. Hawaii, the Caribbean, Southern Spain, Mexico, Fiji. I just love to relax on the beach.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received? When I worked in the corporate world in sales as a young person, a retiring coworker told me that being a “rep” for a company did not mean “representative” but rather “reputation.” “Reputation is everything.” “Do the right thing, even when others are not looking.”
If you could spend the day with any historical figure, who would it be? I have been blessed to have met and worked directly with Steve Jobs of Apple Computer and Michael Dell of Dell Computer, and I interned at AMD with founder Jerry Sanders. I have incredible memories working with many high-tech legends while they were creating their businesses. Today, it would likely be Jeff Bezos of Amazon or entrepreneur Mark Cuban.
Do you have a favorite quote? “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
If you could master any skill instantly, what would it be? I would love to be instantly multilingual and have conversational command.
What is something most people don’t know about you? I hate conflict, and work diligently every day to identify and create solutions that everyone in my world can live with.
