Why did you decide to make Columbus your home?

It’s a big city but it doesn’t feel like you’re in a big city. There is so much to do from an entertainment and dining perspective. It’s a great place to raise your family.

Where do you like to vacation?

Anywhere with sand and water. I really like traveling to the Caribbean. It is very easy to unplug and relax.

Who are your favorite sports teams?

I am a big Ohio State fan. I also like the Cleveland Guardians and I am a season ticket holder for the Columbus Blue Jackets. I have been a Pittsburgh Steeler fan my entire life.
