Words to live by:  “In all aspects of life, one should be looking to constantly improve themselves and those around them, and Bigger, Better, Faster, Cheaper.”

What is your core philosophy for doing business?  “Do everything with uncompromised integrity.   With integrity as your core value and your north star, you can successfully execute any business model.”

Who is your role model and why?  “My late father. He was a genuine person grounded by strong values and always put others ahead of himself. He was universally liked and respected due to the respect he gave to those around him.”

What was the funniest thing that has ever happened to you?  “When I was a kid, my two twin sisters and I were ice skating on river near our home. Suddenly, my left foot went through the ice and for some reason I couldn’t pull it back out. So, instead of chipping the ice away and trying to help me get my foot out, they ran home. Only when they got there and my mom asked them where I was, did they tell her, otherwise, they may have said nothing. So much for brotherly love!”
