It would be short sighted to single out any member of my immediate family, because they’ve all had an amazing impact on making me who I am today. Watching my parents dedicate their lives to making their children successful has inspired a strong work ethic in me. Seeing my siblings achieve success through the same hard work has been equally rewarding. And, my wife’s support has been the biggest driver of my success in both my professional and personal life. She keeps me grounded and focused and makes me a better person (and probably a slightly larger person—she’s a fantastic cook!).
After a decade fostering a sedentary lifestyle, I rediscovered my love for running about five years ago. Since then, I’ve completed three marathons, eight half marathons and dozens of other races, many in partnership with charities I love. The time I spend on the lakefront trail in Chicago each week helps keep me sane and happy. Outside of that, I honestly love just spending time with my wife exploring the amazing city we live in.
Pizza. There’s an endless supply of the best pizza the world has to offer right at our doorstep in Chicago. (see above on expanding waistline, reasons for running and time spent outside work)
It wasn’t necessarily a birthday gift, but my parents’ gift of sending me to London to study when I was in college is probably the best gift I ever received. The staggering cost, and the fact that they didn’t ever hesitate for a second not to sacrifice to make it happen, still floors me to this day.
Subway. Go big or go home. Subway has established, arguably, the most successful franchise system ever, built on decades of perfection from one of the industry’s most successful founders, Fred DeLuca. Getting a chance to partner with such a success story and take advantage of the decades of wisdom from the team he created would be both professionally and personally rewarding.
