Week 3: Casually Cool
What do you like to do for fun?
This is a good question. I have a five-year-old and a two-year-old so chasing them around is a blast and good for my ancient body and soul. I also enjoy bugging my wife a great deal as with this t-shirt I’m pictured in (“Stressed, me? Never!!) She will be greatly annoyed when she sees I wore this for this competition. So fun!! I also like gardening, reading and making rock music.
Week 2: Workplace Image
What do you find most rewarding about your job?
I love being a part of our community and (wait for it…) making connections! In my travels from place to place, I meet a tremendous amount of people and often they have a need that can be met by someone else I know, and I love hooking that stuff up! I always wondered what my gabby pain-in-the-neckness was good for – it turns out that it for my job!!
Week 1: First Impressions
What made you decide to pursue your current career or vocation?
I was leaving a job of 20 years and I thought, “What next?” It turns out that I love the non-profit world with more joy than I could have imagined! So…partly by chance…I ended up in a position I never would have thought to seek out, but which has turned out to be a terrific fit!
Why should people vote for you as “the Most Inspirational Man in Dayton?”
It would bring a real shine to my mid-life crisis!
