Wake up and look at Instagram and Facebook. May get a couple glances in during the day and then when I get home in the evening. I’m not very engaged in Twitter but will scroll occasionally for news or live info.

To-do list manager:

I use my email inbox as my primary task list as well as a pen and notebook.

What’s your one favorite thing about your job?

I grew up around dirt track racing and loved going to World of Outlaw races when I was a kid. It’s pretty cool that I get to work in something I enjoyed as a kid. My co-workers are awesome too!

Best time-saving shortcut or Charlotte life hack:

Using Google maps to get around traffic. It can save 10-15 minutes on my commute by using side roads around traffic.

Bed around 11 p.m. and up around 7 a.m. Sometimes our dog wakes us up in the middle of the night to go to outside.

Where do you go around Charlotte to get away from the office?

Walk the dog around Lake Norman or a sporting event or concert. There are a lot of great restaurants around Charlotte; Jakes Good Eats and Midwood Smokehouse are a couple of my favorites.

What did you eat for breakfast this morning?

Bagel w/ cream cheese and coffee

If you weren’t doing your current job, what would you be doing?

Wouldn’t it be fun to drive a racecar for a living?

Best job advice you’ve received:

A positive attitude, being open to change and the ability to listen to others ideas will set up any situation for success.

What’s one thing people don’t know about Charlotte that they should?

Why it’s the Queen City: It’s named in honor of Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, who was Queen Consort of the United Kingdom right before the city was founded.

Is there anything else that we didn’t ask that you’d like to tell our readers?

I met my beautiful wife at my last job where we worked together for around 8 years before we started dating.
