Advice to your 18-year-old self: If I could give the 18-year-old me advice, I would tell myself to invest in people and to live by the quote by Maya Angelo: “I’ve learned that people will forget what you have said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

Where could I find you on a Saturday morning? You can likely find me at work. If not at work, I’ll be enjoying time with my wife or outside being active.
