Week 3: Casually Cool
What hobbies, activities, and pastimes fuel your passion?
Growing fresh herbs and vegetables, partnering with my wife to make a great meal, getting lost in a good book, and mixing a perfect cocktail fuels my passions and renews me. A key to enjoying these activities is feeling comfortable in the right attire – like wearing a worn pair of jeans in the garden. The right attire for the situation helps me better enjoy my leisure time.
Week 2: Workplace Image
What does an average day (or week) of your life look like?
One reason I like my job is there really isn’t an average day. I can go from negotiating a contract to working with government officials to speaking to a room full of high school students on the dangers of texting and driving. The common denominator is I am representing AT&T and I need to look professional even when I don’t wear a tie. A nice sport coat helps me do this.
Week 1: First Impressions
How did you become the man you are today?
I became the man I am today because of two loving parents, a wonderful wife, and two super kids. These people had the strongest influence over me, and they teach me everyday to keep perspective and enjoy the ride. I don’t always do this, but I try. I feel that the confidence I felt throughout my career was due in part to their influence and good quality dress shirts.
Why should people vote for you as the best Role Model for Men at Work?
I understand the importance of outside appearance and making a good impression, but I value far more what is inside.
