What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I do quite a bit of fishing. I joined Briarwood Sporting Club in Bellefontaine, OH a few years ago and I enjoy taking clients, friends, and family to their facility where we can fish for a wide variety of species. I also watch live sports in my free time, and I kind of lean more towards the college athletic realm, so a lot of collegiate football and college basketball. I follow a few different podcasts, but I tend to keep it a little more in line with my personal career development. There's a podcast out in San Diego called Your Money Your Wealth that I've always had a strong interest in. Ironically, the podcast features a CFP® and a CPA who tackle a plethora of financial planning questions for their followers.
What is a moment from your life that you are proud of?
I live just outside of Dayton in Beavercreek, Ohio. The local chamber here, the Beavercreek Chamber of Commerce, awarded me with their Young Professional of the Year award back in 2022, and it was a proud moment in my life. It's kind of neat to be recognized and awarded for a lot of the community service efforts you do because volunteering goes a long way and it's always appreciated in your local community. The year before I was awarded, I was involved with setting up a committee, organizing events, and relaunching the young professional network through the Beavercreek Chamber of Commerce. So that was a proud moment and made me very grateful to be in a strong community like Beavercreek and provide my personal talents and skills to volunteer and help improve the local community.
