My Dream Vacation: Traveling the islands off of Asia – first stop Bali, then the Maldives, Thailand and Philippines.
Favorite Quote: I have many, but this is one of my favorites. “The moment you give up, is the moment you let someone else win” – Kobe Bryant
Favorite thing about working with Buzz: The uplifting environment and friendly faces that work as a team. Working together in this industry is key to success.
If I had $1 million dollars: I would travel the world with my family and friends and take my kids to their favorite sports arenas! Then of course, build the house of my dreams (near or on a beach) and learn to take up a few more hobbies.
My hobbies are: Reading when I have the time, spending time with my family and kids, and going to the beach as much as possible when the weather is warm enough.
