  • Favorite sports team? All NC State sports, Carolina Hurricanes
  • What would your perfect Saturday be like? After a big breakfast, spend the day with friends and family on the beach in NC, and about mid-afternoon enjoy steamed oysters, shrimp, blue crabs and cold beer until the sun sets realizing you just may have found heaven.
  • Something about you many people don’t know? I’m an “ordained minister” having performed one wedding for a close friend.
  • If you could start a charity, what would it be for? Elder care, and being an advocate for the elderly to help them navigate financial, legal and medical issues, for those that don’t have anyone to help them.
