Q. What excites you most about your new role as the head of Millennium’s new Austin office?
A. I am most excited about tapping into the talent pool in Austin and getting some great new faces onto our team – But I’d be lying if I said I also wasn’t just as excited to eat some good BBQ too.
Q. Is there anything that has surprised you since you joined Millennium?
A. I think I’ve been most surprised by the rapid rate we’re growing. We’re never stagnant – and that’s an awesome environment to be in.
Q. What is your favorite part about working for Millennium?
A. I know everybody says this about Millennium but the best part about working here is the people and the culture. I’m around motivated, like-minded people all day/every day, and there’s something special about that.
Q. Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us.
A. I played basketball in college and used to sing the national anthem before my games.
Q. What is your favorite travel or vacation spot and why?
A. I have two favorites – One is Amalfi Coast in Italy and the other is San Diego, CA. Amalfi is truly the most beautiful place I have ever been and my family has some roots there – so I loved visiting there. San Diego just has the best vibes and nothing beats the beach – I try and get there once a year.
