Leadership over the foundation's development and marketing efforts
Who was your favorite teacher and why?
My favorite teacher was Mrs. Stephenson. She was my 4th grade teacher at Madison Elementary in Columbus, Ohio. I will never forget her. I've had many awesome teachers during my formative years, but Mrs. Stephenson really made me fall in love with learning. She had an ability to make any subject fun, and made me feel like I truly was special to her. She really felt almost like a second mom.
What was your first job?
My first job was a bagger at Kroger Grocery Store. It was really a great job because it's there where I really learned the importance of customer service and relating to people from all walks of life.
If you could have a super power, what would it be?
Create money out of thin air (of course the development guy says that right!). But I would really choose that superpower so that exorbitant support could given to all of the wonderful programs and initiatives that are helping people in need....including HEF!
What was your most memorable vacation?
My most memorable vacation was cruise I took to the Bahamas. It was on that trip where I proposed to my wife, Sarah.
