When you were 5 years old, what did you want to be when you grew up?
An Astronaut. I was just old enough to watch and somewhat understand the first moon walk. The excitement lasted for years and the idea of someday doing something so amazing was overwhelming.

If you could pick one celebrity or historical figure to have lunch with, who would it be?
President Franklin Delano Roosevelt: He was in a leadership position during two of the most pivotal and important events of the last 150 years of history, the great worldwide depression of the 1930’s and the global conflict of World War 2. Spending a long lunch hearing what he was thinking as he attempted to find solutions to problems our country had never faced before would be fascinating to me.
What do you love most about working for Select Resources?
The Challenges. From the beginning back 15 years ago as a pure “start-up” to what we have become today we have faced an untold number of major and minor obstacles. Learning to embrace them as an opportunities to grow both the business and as a person has simply been an amazing experience. Since this is a people business at its core many of those growth experiences were people related which is even better.
