Describe yourself in three words.  Relaxed, Patient, Focused

What is one thing you couldn’t live without?  My 2 girls – though they’re really women now.

Where’s your hometown and where are you based now?   South Jersey beach baby – North Jersey city kid as an adult

Where is the best place you’ve traveled to and why?   Kuala Lumpur – fascinating to be totally out of one’s own element and fend for yourself

What’s the best part about working at Deem and how long have you been here?   I have a long Travel and IT background and my position at Deem combines the two worlds. I am part of a great team with a great sense of humor.

Where would we find you on a typical Saturday afternoon?   Gambling online, gambling in a casino or watching a horror movie.

What are you passionate about?   Watching my children become adults, gambling, and Saints football

What does true leadership mean to you?   A true leader lays the groundwork and steps back and lets you be your best.

What has been the most important innovation you have witnessed in your lifetime?   Mobile phones, texting, social media – though many would disagree, I believe they have brought the world closer together.

Who do you look up to?  My father has always pushed on, never gave up, always lived toward his dreams and still hasn’t quite learned to relax.

What is the best movie you’ve ever seem?   Halloween

Tell us something that might surprise us about you.   I love Halloween and anything Horror.

If you could travel back and tell your younger self anything, what would it be?  Don’t ever pass up an opportunity and don’t ever do something because you’re “expected” to do it.
