What He Wants You to Know:

I am a lifelong learner who can usually be found tinkering with a startup idea, working through some type of formal continuing education, listening to podcasts, or reading. I use education to broaden my horizons, inform my passions, better myself, and leave a greater positive impact on my community.

A few of my favorite recent reads include The Premonition: A Pandemic Story by Michael Lewis, All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, The Autobiography of Malcolm X as told to Alex Haley, and Give and Take by Adam Grant.
