Listening to music every day. Dancing when I feel like it. Laughing out loud a lot. Feeling connection with God, and deepening relationships with my husband, friends and family. Spending time in beautiful places in nature as much as possible. Serving others in some way through my work. Feeling purposeful and confident. Growing and expanding. Living truth and living with integrity.
Community Development Initiatives Manager
Effectively utilize and advance my technical knowledge in order to foster opportunities for social mobility for low- and moderate-income families, while maintaining a balance between work and play that nourishes me and my family.
Show those in my life the same respect and caring I expect. Remember the only true failure comes when I fail to progress and learn and use my knowledge and intuition to realize the other half of the glass is NOT really empty, but rather full of something else of value.
Strive daily to leave the world a better place than I found it becoming a better and more effective father, husband, son, brother, friend, colleague, mentor and citizen every day, as one’s greatest potential lies in their ability to positively impact the lives of others.
Never forget where I came from, what I’ve accomplished with the help of others and the odds I’ve beaten. Without those challenges, I would be where I am today. Use my life lessons to help others overcome obstacles and help them live their best life.
