What hobbies, activities, and pastimes fuel your passion?

I am a comic book aficionado, and I’m currently working my way through the Walking Dead TV series.  But my favorite thing to do in my down time is to hang with my kids.  They make me feel like Superman.  In fact, sometimes they actually think I AM Superman … ahh … young kids!  Superman is everyone’s hero, the last true Boy Scout.  I want to be that way for my kids.

What does an average day (or week) of your life look like?

My days start with helping to get the kids off to a good start before heading off to work.  Typically my schedule varies with meetings, court hearings, and paperwork and then off to baseball practice, games, meetings at church, organizational meetings and then I end the day with ice cream.  My workplace is very social and we interact all day.  I love that I work at a place where people talk and pop into your office to chat about business or their lives … and then we are off to meetings and phone calls with clients and other attorneys.  I interact a lot with the Dayton community throughout the day whether it is through my work or volunteering.

How did you become the man you are today?

My dad raised me as a single parent, so it was just the two of us for the majority of my years growing up.  He taught me how to be a gentlemen, how to treat a lady, how to give a strong handshake, how to drive, and how to interview.  He made sure that he had dinner on the table every night so that we could share a meal and talk about our day.  Even now, he is involved in our life with our boys – still showing me how to be a good adult, father, and grandfather. My dad is my best friend, and if I turn out to be half the dad he was to me, my boys will turn out just fine!

Why should people vote for you as the best Role Model for Men at Work?
