What was your first job?

When I was 16, I was a little league baseball umpire. It taught me how to interact with difficult people, the importance of strong communication, and decisive decision-making skills. I especially enjoyed seeing the players learn the game and develop their skills. 

What is one of your favorite childhood memories? 

Without a doubt, being a student during the University of Michigan "storybook" 2023 football season. I had student tickets and traveled with my friends to Houston to watch the National Championship Victory. It was the cherry on top of an unforgettable season that included rushing the field at the Big House after beating Ohio State for the 3rd year in a row. Go Blue! 

Do you have any skills or talents that most people don’t know about? 

I consider myself a BBQ pitmaster. There is nothing like staying up for a 24-hour brisket cook. I also enjoy preparing a wide variety of dishes such as pulled pork, ribs, and chicken. I was a pulled pork judge at the 2023 World National Barbecue competition in Memphis, TN.
