Why YPOS? I enjoy being involved outside of my every day job and I love meeting new people!
What was your first job?
Working for my father at his auto repair. Yep. He taught me how to earn everything.
What was the last experience that made you a better person?
In general – Traveling! I try to travel internationally once a year. Traveling gives you so much perspective on life. It helps you realize how small your bubble really is. Recently, I visited a friend in Austria and skied in the Alps. It was one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. I always return from travel refreshed, happier and in a positive place. Life is too short to work till you drop. Book that trip!
What’s the most daring thing you’ve ever done?
I went skydiving for my 30th birthday. I’ll never forget that feeling free-falling out of an airplane. It was amazing and I’d do again in a heartbeat!
