What inspires you?

I enjoy helping people pursue and achieve success

What are you most passionate about? 

Love cycling. Have a collection of bikes in the garage that all get well-ridden.

Guilty pleasure? 

A glass of Whiskey

What's your favorite dish, or your signature dish?

Bún Thịt Nướng

What's your favorite place to travel to?

Southern Utah continues to draw me back every year. A place with towering hoodoos, a vast collection of slot canyons, graffiti of the past (petroglyphs), and night skies far from the city lights. Home to Highway 12 which must be one of the most beautiful drives in the world.
