Memorable time:

Joining a great friend in an “entrepreneurial experience” to start a bank and watching an outstanding team come together.

People may be surprised to know:

I caddied 18 holes in a group that included Arnold Palmer.

Life lesson and aspiration:

Life is short; share with others as though it may be your last opportunity because some day it will be.

Most Impactful Book:

Other than the Bible, probably Halftime by Bob Buford. This book encourages readers to take a deep look inside of themselves to identify what is really important in their life and how they will seek to live their life with meaning, for however long their future holds.
