Who was the most influential person to you as a child? There was not one, but two people who influenced me as a child. My parents showed what true hard work and dedication with a compassionate demeanor could accomplish.
What was your worst job? One person's worst job is another's best, but for me serving tables was by far my worst job. I tried it twice and with that I have a lot of respect for people in that industry.
What is your definition of "happiness"? Happiness to me is a state of being. You have to choose to be happy and embrace the glass half full mentality. My "happiest" times would be sitting lakeside at the family cabin with my siblings, their families and my extended family. I love cabin season.
What is your favorite server? Any Dell, HPE or IBM.
