  1. Proudest accomplishment

    I am most proud of having served as a high school football coach at my alma mater. Playing football was an invaluable and life-changing experience, so coaching was my opportunity to give back and positively influence young men by helping them better understand not only football, but hard work, teamwork, and persistence.

  2. Product he wishes he was around to take to market

    As a guitar aficionado, I have a strong appreciation for the holy grail 1959/1960 Gibson Les Paul, considered one of the most desirable guitars. Ironically, it was not successful at release and was discontinued after 2 years. With hindsight, it would have been an incredible opportunity to work on the marketing of that guitar, and to show people why it was a unique and superior instrument, and assuage people’s concerns and biases.

  3. Favorite cause

    Animal Welfare is my favorite cause. I grew up with dogs and understand how important they have been to my life. The challenge is that not all dogs get to live in a good home, so shelters facilitate getting dogs into better homes where they can be happy. The other challenge is that shelters are not ideal environments for dogs. For 3 years, I volunteered at a NYC animal shelter working to improve each dog’s quality of life while they were in the shelter.
