Person you most admire (outside of family): The NYC fire fighters, police officers and our military who put their lives on the line every day so that we can be safe.

If you had to choose another vocation, what would it be? I’ve had the luxury of trying all of the professions I ever thought about, and the nice thing about sales and marketing is that you can apply the principles to almost any field. I’ve been in security for over 21 years, and I am doing what I love.
