What are some of your hobbies and interests?
I’m a man of many interests! When I’m not working, you’ll often find me swimming, taking on home improvement projects, tending to my garden, hitting the biking trails, spiking volleyballs on the court, and exploring new destinations while traveling.
Why did you pick this career path, and why did you choose GSF to share your talents with?
I’ve always had a deep desire to be a public servant. It’s my calling. Interestingly, I stumbled upon this job, and it was our organization that took a chance on me. It felt like a perfect fit from day one, and I’m proud to be part of this incredible team.
What would you say is the best part of your workday?
The best part of my workday is definitely twofold. First, I appreciate the flexibility that allows me to balance work and life effectively. But what truly drives me is the chance to work closely with our clients and serve our community. Making a positive impact is incredibly fulfilling.
